Dear John,


Just a quick note to say an enormous thank you for the beautiful flowers you provided for mum’s funeral at Banbury a couple of weeks ago.


We actually met mum a bit nearer to the Crematorium because she was being carried by horse and carriage for the last part of the journey and when I saw the flowers on top of mum’s coffin and the magnificent German Shepherd dog you had done in the back of the carriage it made me so happy!  It was a beautiful occasion and I couldn’t have hoped for more – everyone was stunned by the dog, it was brilliant and I have it here at home with me!


Beautiful flowers, brilliantly done.  Thank you so very much.

DETAILS: Dear Johnathan

I would like to express my thanks to you for the beautiful flower tribute you provided for my sister last Friday.

It was such a sad day, but knowing she would have loved the detail and thought behind the gates was a great help.

Sincere thanks


Dear Jonathan
Just a very brief note to say thank you very much for the lovely flowers you did for the funeral today of my

Thank you once again.
Kind regards

Johnathan, Just wanted to send you a note to say how beautiful the flowers you did for us for Betty Crane's funeral were.

My Mother recenttly passed away. We were recommended by Heritage Funeral Directors to speak to Jonathan at Country Garden in Winslow. Jonathan could not have been more kind and caring in helping us make the right floral tribute for our Mother. The flowers were so beautiful and chosen so carefully we were astounded, Jonathon even made up small bouquets from the Floral Tribute and delivered them promptly to the Wake afterwards. Our family and friends were delighted to be given a bouquet to take home afterwards. Our heartfelt Thanks to Jonathon for making a difficult time very special.


Subject: RE: The Gates of Heaven

Dear Jonathan

Thank you for your email 

I would like to say that your ideas and expressions of life/death and all in-between in your floral tributes are breathtaking - I dont think I will ever see anything as beautiful as the gates of heaven you have created in my lifetime.

Hi, you did the flowers for my mothers funeral on wed 19th nov. Travina " chunky" Ladyman.

I feel so strongly that I needed to email you, organizing her funeral was devistating for all of us , but the one thing we were do sure of was mum loved flowers, she did flower arranging courses years ago and I'm surprised she didn't take it further. She was very artistic lady. So when dad recommended you - we was happy but only hoped the flowes would be big and plenty. Well you went above and beond , they were truly amazing, when mum arrived at the house the first thing I could see and think was wow mum would love those flowers they are perfect! To me they looked like someone ( you) have created these masterpieces with love and care perfect for our mum. I have kept your cards and will recommend you at any given oppitunity. Hope to meet you one day.

Many thanks Eve Brian's daughter x

  Thank you Johnathan.
 Andrea was absolutely thrilled with the flowers. She has sent us photographs of them (from all angles!!) and they look beautiful. You would have thought that she had sent us a picture from your web page instead of a photograph of the real thing. Your flowers that we had sent for Aunt Peggy's funeral were also lovely and a tribute to your skill.
We will be in touch again when a suitable 'flower' occasion arises in the family.
All the best,


Hello Johnathan
Just a line to thank you for the tremendous flower tributes you prepared for the funeral arranged by Melissa Pankhurst for last Wednesday. They helped provide a very apt setting for to ease the difficult emotions at such a such sad time. Thank you again for your care and attention to detail.

Hi Johnathan.

2 weeks ago we buried our Aunt Lilian in a cemetery in Brackely. On the way realising that we had forgotten our wreath we got to Winslow knowing it had a high street we had 10 minutes to spare and needed a wreath. The owner Johnathan stopped immediately what he was doing and made the most beautiful wreath much better in valve than the one we had from London in 10 minutes. This florist I would recommend to anyone they were very friendly, professional, helpful and their wreathes were fantastic. 100% happy and thank you for saving the day.

Hi Jonathan

I can't believe three weeks have passed since we put my mum's ashes in with my dad at Vicarage Road cemetery in Bletchley. Thank you so much for tweaking the flowers as you did. I couldn't believe how wonderful it looked even twelve days after her funeral.

I have never heard of a florist being so attentive and neither have all the people I've told!

It really made both occasions perfect.

Best wishes


Hi Jonathan

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you very much for making us such a beautiful floral tribute for my family for my father's funeral last Monday - it was just as we requested....

Thank you


Sandra Lewis

I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for the lovely flowers for our baby's funeral. It was so difficult to find a supplier who did beautiful and natural displays instead of the sculpted sombre displays of carnations that everywhere else seems to do. Thanks too for the good value and efficient service, every little thing that makes things easier on an occasion like this is really appreciated.
It was the saddest occasion we could ever have imangined having to organise but the beautiful sunflowers perfectly fitted how we wanted to remember our baby and how he made us feel when he lived. I know our family and friends found them beautiful too and said they were a lasting image of the day that will stay with them. I'm sure I'll be ordering more for his anniversary next year.
Best wishes


Hi Johnathan

I write on behalf of all our family to thank you most sincerely for the floral arrangement for David's funeral yesterday. The flowers looked absolutely stunning and as you said they would, were perfect when placed on the casket in the back of the horse drawn carriage. It was a magnificent sight and a terrific send-off for David and in no small part your display set the scene for what turned out to be an excellent celebration of David's life.

On behalf of us all, thank you very much

Kind regards

Dear Johnathan,

Thank you so much for the flowers you provided for my father in laws funeral. They are lovely and wonderfully put together. Exactly as ordered. The quality is superb and the greenery background in particular is so much nicer than the ribbon or bare backgrounds that I have seen elsewhere. Little details make such a difference, particularly in difficult times when you need everything to be perfect and stress free.

Thank you again.




Dear Johnathan,

Just wanted to thank you for dads floral tributes, they were absolutely fantastic, words cannot describe how i felt when i saw them. Dad was
never really one for flowers so we wanted to incorporate them into something that had a meaning for dad in them (if that makes sense!) and
they fitted the bill perfectly. We could not have asked for anything better, totally exquisite workmanship. Thank you again.
Jackie Wyatt. 
Dear Johnathan,
Just a note to thank you for the beautiful flower arrangements you did for our mum's (Mrs McCaffrey)  funeral .  You have such a superb eye for colour and composition.  I am particularly grateful to you for the way you were abe to incorporate the purple and lilacs which formed my wedding bouquet within the "Mum" tribute.  Mum had such a happy day at our wedding just one day before she died and you created for me a wonderful reminder of the happiness she knew that day.
Wishing you all the best
Kind regards
Sheenah Lintott

Hi Jonathan-Our IT Department offered the following options (1 – 3) to enable you to email the photographs, but you know what - - It would be quicker to do what he put at the foot of the email and use a different address!!!!  Please see below -


I want to thank you again for the beautiful flowers for Mum yesterday – They were absolutely exactly as I had in mind and the Spring Flower one you did for my cousin was perfect.


If you have difficulty sending the images, don’t waste any more time, but if it is possible, it would be greatly appreciated.


Cheers and best regards
