I am wondering what your favorite garden center is. What do you like best about it & where is it located.

Mine is Mileagers in Racine, WI. Beautiful plants, big selection, including many unusual perennials and herbs.

How about you all?..........

I really love Busse Gardens ( They are located in Big Lake, MN. They have great plants. I mail ordered from them the past 3 years and just love the plants they send. They do have a large selection and are very pleasant to deal with.

I think their website is:
