Online seed suppliers?

Ive been spending the evening browsing the usual well known seed suppliers (Thompson Morgan, Fothergills etc) in preperation for placing orders for this years flower seeds.

But do any of you have a favourite online seed supplier that you would recommend? I'd rather support one of the smaller companies if possible.

Each year me and my little boy plant giant sunflower seeds and compete to see who can grow the tallest (he always wins!).

This year I'd also like to plant a couple of alternate varieties as well, perhaps something a different colour. Can anyone recommend any varieties that have grown well for them please?

Too late to plant Tulip/Daff bulbs?

discodave, yes I got them all planted up into pots soon after starting this thread. Im hoping the recent cold spell will have triggered some growth, but nothing showing yet.

Planted up 12 large pots of tulip & daff bulbs today. A few daff bulbs had gone soft & squidgy so I discarded those. But most had sprouted and looked like they wanted to grow.

Thanks again.

Ok, so I could plant them into pots now, and they will grow but not flower. But they may flower next year?
