When Ron Dubuc started selling poinsettias 24 years ago, he struggled to unload the ones he offered out of the back of a truck on Storrs Street in Concord. Now Dubuc and his wife Cindy, who runs Ledgeview Greenhouses with him, spend hours bagging the brightly colored holiday staples into a truck to deliver around the state. On Monday morning, it took them four hours at the greenhouse in Loudon to fill a truck to the brim for a vendor in Meredith. “I sell out before the season even starts,” he said.
