Questions and Answers
What 3 words best describe your work?
Fresh, unique, and inventive.
Tell us about your company name.
In 1918, a man named Samuel Leigh opened a quaint little flower shop. Samuel grew trees, shrubs, and flowers on the land that is known as the Haddon Leigh section of town (named after Samuel himself). Over the years, several additions were made to the building, including a greenhouse. Fast forward to 2004, when Denise Leigh Herker purchased the shop. The moment Denise set eyes on the shop, she knew it was meant to be—especially since her middle name was coincidentally already on the sign!
