How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Skilled florists can interpret your tastes (or those of the recipient), determine what’s appropriate for the occasion, and then create a work of art that fits those needs. Our ratings of florists for quality and price should help you pick the best.

If you want delivery, exotic flowers, or need advice, your best bet is a florist. But if you’re willing to pick up the posies yourself and want to save a lot of money, you have several other options.

When you need to send flowers to someone outside the area, what do you do? We review the options, and advise you on how to deal with each to ensure you and your special someone on the other end are happy with the results.

Since most garden centers buy—rather than raise—most of what they sell, there is room for tremendous variation in buying ability and buying standards. The opinions we collected from consumers on garden centers reflect this big variation in quality.

Diamonds, the hardest substance in the world—and one of the most expensive—remain the top choice for engagement rings in the U.S. But wearing a carat or two of bling on your left hand isn’t an age-old tradition.

Our ratings of local chains and stores report how each stacks up for price and quality. To compare prices, our researchers used a 154-item list of common items—and lots of energy—to shop area options. To evaluate stores on quality of products and service, we surveyed area consumers.
