Looking for mainly quality, quanity, rarity, and price.

I like onegreenworld.com and isons.com (isons solely for their muscadines)

I know there are tons of great sites.
Svnursery.com
Hiddenvalleynursery.com
Anyone order from either of these two places?

Any suggested sites will be much appreciated.

For fruit/nut trees, I suggest buying from as close to home as possible.

Not only does that assure trees that can/will survive in your environment, it also saves on shipping.

The best source of tree/shrub seeds that I know of is:
http://www.treeshrubseeds.com/catalog.asp

Huge selection, and good prices. They sell 3 sizes of packs: 1oz, ┬╝lb, and 1 lb.
If you click on any particular species, a 2nd window opens that gives a lot of details on the species.

Paper jam tastes about as you would expect. Try some on this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
