Coveting every plant in Breck's catalog -  they have all bulbs imaginable direct from Holland.

What's your reliable source of new and interesting things for the garden?

 

I've used Well-Sweep Farm in Port Murray NJ for many years. It's a delightful ride out in the country to an extensive range of herbs and greenery. (The "Port" in its name comes from the Morris Canal, which passed near the farm.)

 

Wide range of basils, mints, and other vegetation. Not organic, but they do use their own chicken and sheep compost.

Von Bourgondien's is the catalog I drool over – and order from – the most. I've been happy with everything I've ordered, except for some foxglove, which were miniscule to begin with and didn't take my neglect and abuse kindly.

 

They have a very liberal wholesale policy: pretty much anyone who orders more than $150 (I think that's the amount) in plants can get wholesale pricing.

White Flower Farm makes me salivate (salveate?). But they're damned expensive. I think that Echinacea 'Harvest Moon' is just about the prettiest one I've seen. And that Daylily mix is stunning. (Edit: I don't garden. I point.)

White Flower Farm ...that Daylily mix is stunning.

We have a gift certificate from White Flower Farm; I'm holding on to it until we can get a certain hillside prepared, at which point I'll order the daylily mix.

 

Friends of mine have a piece of property with several deep banks cut around it, all of them planted in mixed daylilies (many from White Flower). I'd guess they have nearly a half-acre of daylilies. They have a big cocktail party every summer when the lilies are at their peak (no surprise they call it their Annual Lily Party). I wish I had pictures. It's heartbreakingly beautiful.

The 2012 Well Sweep Farm catalog is available.

 

Almost 2,000 varieties of herbs and spices, as well as many essential oils, soaps, etc I've found it my go-to place for lavender, rosemary, a dozen varieties of oregano, etc. A cornucopia of chickens, too.

 

The farm in Port Murray NJ is a very pleasant place to visit in early May, when the selection is near its peak.

Business has been so bad these last few years that one of the bigger (and better IMO) perennial grows in the Tri-state area almost didn't plant this year. At the last minute they finally pulled it together. So in other words - don't overpay for white flower stuff if its things you can find around here more easily and cheaply.
