is where Needham residents turn for the best floral arrangements, according to this week's Best Of Needham - Readers' Choice poll.

The business, located at 888 Great Plain Ave., received —59 percent—in our weekly contest. Coming in second was with 22 percent, followed by with 13 percent of the votes.

Though not yet rated in the Needham Patch Directory, Hillcrest Gardens received 4 1/2 stars on Yelp.com.

Framingham resident R.B. writes on Yelp:

Family-owned, very knowledgeable and nice. No 'superior gardener' attitude at all, and happy to give advice. Good selection for a small place and very reasonable prices. Nice quality stock much cheaper than say, Weston Nurseries (which is an amazing place, but a little like going to a Lexus dealership when you can really only afford a Hyundai). Get a cone at and take a stroll!

Yelp commenter Claire W., a Newton resident, calls the staff "very knowledgeable," while Needham resident Cinzia O. calls Hillcrest Gardens "one of the best nurseries around."

... the setting is charming as well as serene! They have a great selection of trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials as well as everything else a gardener may need. Staff is very friendly and knowledgable. Check it out at christmas time when they sell the most beautiful wreaths (that they custom make) and great Christmas trees. Truly a treasure... Needham is lucky to have!
