Except for the very few retail nurserymen who write garden columns or host radio garden shows, not many get much fame. They like it that way. They barely tolerate nasty customers, so really do not want to deal with herds of crazed fans. (We’re pretty sure even those with a radio show don’t have any crazed fans, but it’s nice to dream.) It is possible and very beneficial to be well known within the local community as a proficient and knowledgeable nurseryman who markets plants of impeccable quality. However, this is more a question of “reputation” than actual fame. Maybe you can be featured on Lifestyles of the Middle Class and Reputable.
