Botanical Interests, Family owned and run works on the preservation of seeds, heirlooms, and organics.  Definitely no GMO (Genetically Modified, Engineered) and not padding to Monsants wallet.

www.jungseed.com  I've found these to be less expensive than Gurney's or Henry Fields (sister companies), Jung's just doesn't have the huge variety that the others do.  I found what I liked there.

www.burgess.com is another one that doesn't cost an arm and leg for seeds.  I thought the germination rate was slightly less and they do not have a lifetime guarantee on their trees, shrubs & flowers like Gurney's does.

I read the book "square foot gardening" and am planning on following some plans there.  I don't have a huge yard, so this works out perfectly.  Here's the webstite and I took the book out from my library.  http://www.squarefootgardening.com/
