Wow I can’t say enough good things! I ordered flowers for my Aunt in the hospital last week and they are still so beautiful! The hospital staff was even remarking how lovely! Thanks Ashleigh’s for brightening her day! More...

I would highly recommend working with Ashleigh’s garden. Allison was great to work with and provided really great suggestions while being practical about what we really needed. Provided really great suggestions for the center pieces. They really thought of everything and incorporated our thoughts and ideas into everything. More...

This is not you typical flower shop! It's truly a destination for not only beautiful flowers, plants and such, but the opportunity to meet some really cool people that love flowers and birds! They recently opened a thrift shop in the space next door where the profits will be used to pay for the exotic birds and pets that need vet care and food. Locally known as one of the best flower shops for weddings! Highly recommend a stop if you are in the area! More...

Our wedding flowers were absolutely perfect and so much better than I ever could have anticipated. We told Allison the vibe of our wedding and made broad requests for what we wanted the flowers to look like (gardeny was sort of the extent of my explanation) and WOW did she "get" it. Her understanding and implementation of my ill-explained aesthetic made our photos, cocktail hour, and reception so special. For the first time in the history of weddings, our guests even asked to bring our centerpieces home (no begging or games necessary)!! She also made the worlds cutest flower collar for my bridesdoggy harper :) My bouquet lasted over a week after the wedding, which is unheard of especially in my house (I have a black thumb). LOVE LOVE LOVE Ashleighs Garden and Allison and the wonderful things she does for animals in need. More...

This is a local shop that had it all! Come for the flowers and stay for the animals! They have really made a new home at their new location since moving from Centerbrook. They now occupy a space that use to be an old printing shop. The location is so convenient being that is right off of exit 4 on route 9. From antiques, to furry and feathered animals this shop is worth stopping by if you haven't already! More...

If you are like me you may have driven past Ashley’s in Deep River hundreds of times without really taking much notice. That changed for me this past August . I was planning my wedding and determined to do my own arrangements – table vases, bouquet and other smaller displays. After multiple attempts at creating sample arrangements where they did not quite look right, I realized this flower arrangement thing is an art and I needed a professional to step in. A friend recommended Ashley’s and I am forever grateful. This small business is run by an extremely knowledgeable, warm and friendly team, eager to listen to your needs and deliver as promised. I had ideas of the flowers I wanted, and I had already purchased my vases, so Ashley’s was charged with purchasing the flowers and creating the arrangements. In addition, I provided Pinterest ideas for my bouquet. In the end, Ashley’s surpassed my expectations, everything was delivered on time and my bouquet was exactly what I wanted, not close to what I wanted, but exactly what I wanted. Of course, a matching Boutonniere to my bouquet was included, a small but important detail. Now I look back at pictures and will always remember how Ashley’s played such an important role in my day while making the whole process so simple. I will absolutely use them again, and highly recommend them with confidence. They are the right florist to consider for any party and event needs. More...

At first I thought I wanted to take care of all the florals on my own (to save money) but I quickly realized it would be a lot better to hire a professional. We went with Ashleigh's Garden because it came recommended by a friend and was a preferred vendor at our venue. I only had a vague idea of what I wanted, so Allison designed all my bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces. They were amazing for our winter wedding! More...

I've met my match in Alison Sloane. She's as opinionated as I am. Considering Baby's Breath? Go elsewhere. And she counsels her brides that a centerpiece shouldn't have to cost more than $50. She's the Shoreline's only greenflorist: her roses are sustainably farmed, using insects instead of pesticides to produce perfect blooms. With two degrees in fine art and a background in Dutch floral design (no foam for her), her full-blown arrangements are masterful.Word of mouth and a hopeless devotion to her brides keeps her wedding business booked well in advance. But flowers are not the only reason to pay Ashleigh's a visit. A roomful of laugh-out-loud greeting cards, a small but interesting selection of antiques and, as far as I know, the ONLY place to find Harbor Sweets fantastic chocolates from Salem, MA. Alison recues parrots, too, and twenty or so provide some amusing background chirping to your flower browsing. This place is worth a visit. More...

Allison at Ashleigh's Garden and her entire team are amazing. I used her for my wedding and everything came out picture perfect. My bouquet was EXACTLY as I had envisioned, as were my centerpieces. I was planning everything and communicating from another country so I had to use email a lot and Allison always responded in a timely manner. But what was great was the fact that I kept realizing I needed things that Ihad forgotten about (eucalytus for the sweetheart table, flowers on my arbor) and she was able to add them on without issue.Thanks again!(Photos by Daphne and Dean Photography) More...

Ashleigh's Garden was our florist for our July wedding! When I got engaged no other florist was even a consideration! In addition to being one of the most caring and kind hearted people I have ever met, Allison is also a floral genius. After years of seeing her unique and timeless arrangements I was excited to give her free rein and see what she would design for our wedding. I showed her my bridesmaid dresses and described the "feel" of our wedding and she created the most amazingly beautiful and fragrant bouquets. Allison takes great pride in the quality of her work, we had flower petals lining our aisle and she scattered them herself to make sure they looked perfect... and they did! In addition to the gorgeous flowers for our wedding, Allison also made me a lovely flower crown to wear for my bridal shower! Thank you Ashleigh's Garden! More...

Allison and her team at Ashleigh’s garden were so great to work with for our wedding. After our first meeting with her, we knew she was going to do a great job for our wedding. Flowers were really important to us and we had a pretty detailed plan of what we wanted for the wedding and she was able to give us suggestions and recommendations on how to make it even better. She had samples in her shop of some of the flowers we wanted which helped us to visualize for the wedding day. When we actually did see the flowers on the wedding day our breaths were taken away. It was exactly how we had pictured it; everything was so beautiful from the bouquets, bouts and flower crown, to the table arrangements, they really hit it out of the park! Allison’s shop is also home to many animals and as animal lovers that really sold us! We would highly recommend Allison to any future bride and groom!

First and foremost what impressed me is the time that Allison, the owner, takes to meet with the bride and groom to get a feel of who they are and what their likes/dislikes are. Planning your flowers can be overwhelming as there are so many flowers and styles to choose from. Allison created the most beautiful arrangements and bouquets for my daughter's wedding in August which was held at the Pondhouse in West Hartford. My daughter wanted to do something different then your typical floral arrangement on each table. The Pondhouse is what I would describe as rustic chic. Allison came up with a great idea of individual bottles on each table - I believe it was 5-7 bottles per table depending on the size of the bottles. She could provide the bottles or we could get our own. We decided to see if we could find enough bottles at antique shops. We collected antique bottles from all over so they were all different. It was fun but a lot of work to find so many bottles but worth it. Allison and her staff created the stunning centerpieces using bottles in all different shapes and sizes with gorgeous flowers - they fit the room perfectly - were in no way overpowering like some centerpieces can be. She even gave us the idea to give the bottles to the guests for their favor - she made a beautiful tags with the guests names on them that were tied to each bottle. She also created the most beautiful design of rose petals on the aisle that matched the bridal bouquets. We received a lot of compliments from our guests on the bridal parties bouquets and the centerpieces. People were thrilled when they realized that they could take the bottles home with them! You will not be disappointed if you use Ashleigh's Garden for your wedding. More...
