Might I suggest Josef Jurasek seed list

Josef Jurasek's seeds? I sent an order by email on the 7th of January and received them today.
That's only 15 days from the Czech Republic! The link is below.

That is quick service!  So what wonderful things did you get?

Vojtech Holubec also has an amazing seed list out with collections from China, the Caucasus and Patagonia.  (I  was very kindly sent the electronic seed list, and would have liked to post it here, but have somehow lost the e-mail it was in.  I do have his e-mail address, though, and could pass it along by PM to anyone who wants to contact him for the list.)  His paper catalogue has nice line drawings, and even some colour photos, to make ordering all the more irresistible!  Some of the goodies include Gentiana urnula and Caltha sinogracilis (cerise flowers!)... wow!

Hi Lori,

I received Thlaspi, Iberis, Saxifrag, Campanula, Poppy, Arenaria, Acantholimon and other choice, caespitose plant seed.  I'm finding that my definition of plants that belong in a trough should be 4" or shorter.  Using this definition keeps my plant and seed buying in check :)
