http://www.windowbox.com is fun. They have an interactive questionnaire that helps you figure out what plants will work for a given location based on the sun, rain, etc.

Awesome site for ordering perennials and they have a half price sale going now! They also have a "questionnaire" to fill out to determine what will grow best giving lighting conditions, soil conditions and your heat/cold zone.

This one is local for me. But, they put out the best gardening guide for the Maritime Northwest!

Maybe you could type in your local city and tilth and get something similar?

We got all our seeds from here this year. They had great service and everything came up really quick. So far I am very impressed.

I got their flyer in the mail and thought their prices were too good to be true. We placed a large order as we're in a new house. Everything is doing really well and is growing faster than the neighbor's plants from Lowe's. We bought trees, shrubs, perennials, & groundcovers. Next year we're going to try their fruit bushes.

If you need a lot of plants, trees, and/or shrubs but don't have a lot to spend, go here!!!

Shipping is $9 no matter how much you order. 1 year warranty.
