Things are moving on up here at Ledgeview Greenhouses as we get closer to opening day on April 22nd! Many of our 10″ and 12″ hanging baskets have started to fill out and taken their place on one of our rotating tracks in the upper part of the greenhouse.
Each plant is hand trimmed by one of our employees, then attached to it’s 3-stem plastic hanger, and individually lifted onto the track. Once they are on the track, we can use our built in watering system that hits each plant on both the top and bottom levels of the track with just enough water as the track continues to rotate. We have 8 rows that will be filled up by the time we open!
In a larger scale greenhouse like this one we benefit from this hanging basket system for a lot of reasons: having multiple rows with multiple levels helps us utilize the space we have to the fullest and leaves tables open for smaller pots below, we can ensure all baskets are getting the correct amount of water and fertilizer with each water that we do so they continue to grow big and beautiful, and when our customers come to pick out their baskets in a few weeks, they will get to see them hanging above with the large variety of colors so that they can choose exactly the ones they want!
Where are the flowers, you ask? We get this question a lot this time of year when we share photos. The truth is that we pick off almost every single flower in our greenhouse that bud up until right before we open. This is a sad job to do, but beautiful flowers take up a lot of plant energy, so we pick them off so the plants focus more on establishing a good root system before we let those beautiful colors take over. Have no fear, they always come back even more full and beautiful ready to go home with our customers!
