Meet the Vendors: Twin Terrapins Photography

Ledgeview Greenhouses is lucky to consign many products from local NH businesses! While our mums are filling out and the poinsettias soak up the greenhouse sun, we thought we would take some time to introduce you to our awesome vendors and showcase the work that we fell in love with this Spring!


Quality photographers have a true gift and talent, and our second vendor in this campaign is Twin Terrapins Photography, owned and operated by Angela Andrews.

Angela is a local who lives very close to the greenhouse. Her and her friendly and outgoing twin daughters are friends of Ledgeview and love to come and help out!

In stock we carry some large prints of Angela’s work, as well as a selection of cards to accompany greenhouse and floral gifts. Please give us a call if you are interested in purchasing any of the items, or you can visit her website at http://www.twinterrapinsphoto.com/

Mums the Word!

Have no fear, summer is still here! However, we’ve been in Fall planting mode and our mums are starting to fill out nicely!

All of our mum pots are watered every day using an irrigation system on our front mat. We keep them outside so that they can soak up all the beautiful sunshine this summer has given us, and even get a little extra water when it rains.

Our mum crop will be ready to for purchase tentatively the last week in August! Check back for more updates on the official date! The colors we will have available will be:

  • Bronze
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Lavender
  • White
  • Pink

Another reason we keep them outside is so that we can get this greenhouse ready for poinsettias! I know it’s hard to believe but there’s only 21 weeks until we’re in the middle of the holidays! We have been working very hard in this heat to get the greenhouse completely clean for these guys to have room to be planted and grow. It’s hard to imagine how full this place was only a few months ago!

Our greenhouse attracts much more than our local gardeners! This guy stopped by the register today before flying off to relax in the hanging baskets!

Perrenial & Petunia Central!

Do you want to plant flowers this year that will come back again next year, no muss no fuss?

If you said yes to either of these questions, you need to get to Ledgeview Greenhouses ASAP! We have a HUGE selection of both our perennial crop and petunia selection for you to choose from. It would be worth the trip just to come and enjoy the vibrant colors of the petunia house. Then head over the large greenhouse and look up to find rows and rows of petunia hanging baskets in all solid and mixed colors.

Potting Palooza

Happy Monday everyone! Now that our soil has warmed up from outside, it’s time to fire up the potting machine and get all the pots ready to be planted!

Hands in SoilPotting hundreds of plants each day can get pretty dirty. From mixing the soil together to moving the full pots around, no article of clothing or skin is safe from a little dirt at the end of the day. Needless to say we aren’t wearing our Sunday best this week!

Sometimes it can be easy to take things like soil for granted. Think about how many hands have had to touch every piece of soil that ends up in your house plants or gardens! Unless you till your own land, your potted plants can contain natural ingredients from at least 3 different states at once, and have been handled by 5-10 workers, including those at your local greenhouse, before it ends up on your porch! Every flower and vegetable needs a good source of nutrients in their soil to become the beautiful and nutritious results we enjoy every year — it brings new meaning to the phrase ‘it takes a village’!
