Aimee Mignier 18′ carries on the family tradition at Delhi Greenhouse:

 

Delhi family shares agriculture expertise

For the Mignier family of Delhi, everything is coming up roses.

The Migniers, owners of Green Thumb Greenhouses at 265 Main St. in Delhi, offer vegetable and bedding plants, annuals and perennials, organic soils and fertilizers, terrariums, organic insecticides, herbs, houseplants and seasonal garden decor. Aimee Mignier, 34, manages the business with her parents, Chris and Leslie.

“My parents bought the business in 1994 and I grew up in Delhi,” Aimee Mignier said. “We moved here when I was a toddler from North Carolina and my dad worked at SUNY Delhi as a welding professor, but he'd studied ag at LSU. My mom always worked in greenhouses and has her degree in horticulture, so I kind of got it from both of them. I followed in her footsteps though, because I got my degree from SUNY Cobleskill for plant sciences.”

Though Green Thumb Greenhouses is open year-round, Mignier said, the arrival of spring brings with it the business’ busiest season.
