Readers' Choice: Best Florist in East Providence

Who's your favorite in town?

If a woman in your life says "don't bother buying me flowers," you're probably better off doing it anyway.

Why? Because no matter how traditional of a gift they are, flowers are an immediate pick-me-up. They're fresh, colorful and quite the pleasant surprise.

That said, you can't give just any flowers. (Forgo the carnations and don't even think about picking a few out of the front lawn.) Make it a bouquet, the bigger the better. Roses always win.

Luckily, there are dedicated local florists who can help you get it right.

This week, we want to know: Which florist in town is your favorite?

Is it , , , or Secret Petals?

Vote in our poll below, then share your thoughts in the comments section. If we left your favorite florist off the list, note that in the comments as well.

We'll leave the poll up all week then close voting at 9 a.m. Friday. At noon that day, we'll share your top local pick. Then be sure to watch the site over the weekend when we tally up the top votes and announce the florists that got the most rave reviews across all of our Rhode Island sites.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

P&J Florist has the best quality, service and pricing in all of RI. The owner, David, is also very honest and helpful. They are my first choice in flowers. They may not be the largest in RI, but all of these important qualities together have kept them in business while half of the other florists on this list have had to close shop.

I have used Gilmore for years ..... It started 20 something years ago when I lived in Florida and called them to deliver flower to my Grandparents Anniversary. They were super friendly.. I have used them for everything I needed flowers for since then....
