Over the weekend I was at a box hardware store (which shall remain nameless), looking through their flowers and found many of them to be rather sickly and scraggly looking. I wondered "who has the best flowers?"

According to Yelp, these are the best garden centers and nurseries in Rockford.

There were 3 pages of Nurseries and Gardens centers listed. Those listed below were the top locations that were rated.

 Rock Valley Garden Center - 785 North Bell School Road Rockford

Village Green Nursery - 6101 E. Riverside Blvd. Rockford

Lowe's Home Improvement - Both locations on East State Street Rockford and on North Alpine Road in Machesney Park.

Home Depot - Both locations. Argus Drive in Rockford, and West River Road in Machesney Park.

Gensler Gardens - Both locations. Orth Road in Loves Park, IL and On Hwy 251 south of Rockford.

Now that the weather is warmer now I feel like being out on my porch and patio and they look so naked with any out beautiful flowers. I want wave petunias for my flower box, some sort of vine type of flowing plant to put in my birdcage planter and I want a geranium hanging basket.

Who do you suggest? Any of those listed above?
