We recall the hordes of customers coming to the nursery in the ‘50’s and ‘60’s during late summer every year to see the thousands of Fuchsia plants and displays. Hanging baskets in full bloom as far as the eye could see, and new varieties being introduced every year…those were exciting times. Then, in the 1980’s a microscopic mite wiped out virtually all of our stock plants, and we were in mourning. Now, with a decline in the mite population and new resistant forms THEY’RE BACK.
