John Davis’s path to being the top floral designer in Savannah was a bit unexpected. After John’s father died suddenly when he was only 16, he wanted to make his mother happy and keep his dad’s gravesite neat with fresh flowers. He made friends with a local florist and was a quick study. At age 18, he was making Valentine’s and Easter flowers for customers out of his home and later that year (1988), he got the opportunity to purchase a small shop in the heart of Savannah. As he tells everyone on his Facebook page, he really does want everyone to Buy Flowers!!
John is married to Jennifer Abshire Davis, has two grown stepchildren, Phillip and Reilly, and a boxer puppy named Rocky.
