Fast forward to 2016, Renee Scuderi began working for Sylvia and discovered her love for all things plant-like. Two years later, the business transferred ownership to Renee and she’s been mastering her green thumb ever since.
Tromblee’s Greenhouse & Gifts consists of 5 greenhouses – three for retail, one for vegetables, and one for Fort Ticonderoga’s King’s Garden, as well as a gift shop. Within the greenhouses you can find a plethora of plants, flowers, vegetables, and herbs including: impatiens; cosmos; pansies; dusty miller; eggplant; strawberries; tomatoes; basil…the varietals are almost endless! The Tromblee’s team also has soils, mulch, and your other gardening needs on hand to make Tromblee’s Greenhouse and Gifts your one-stop shop!
Within the gift shop you can find a beautiful selection of antiques, farmhouse décor, candles, repurposed furniture, and select local vendors including Buck Mountain Maple Syrup; Eugene Woods’ cutting boards, wooden spoons, and birdhouses; and Maiden by the Lakes’ rustic creations.

The greenhouses at Tromblee’s will be fully stocked by May 1st. The Tromblee’s team is ready to help fulfill your needs. “It takes a village,” says Renee, stating that the contents of the five greenhouses need constant maintenance from her amazing staff, including herself and husband, Dan.
