[Market-farming] buying live plants??

I've used Germania Seed Company (www.germaniaseed.com) for herb plugs on
several occasions and found their plants to be just fine. I've also had some
mixed results with Richter's; the reason you state seems most likely why.
Instead of coming from just one location, Germania sources from growers all
over the US. Their catalog is a nightmare to figure out initially. Each
grower has their own set of listings, so you may find lemon thyme listed in
8 different locations. There are different minimums, tray sizes, etc. but
the prices are competitive, usually better than Richter's.
Would like to hear of others folks have found.

We need a reliable source of herb seedlings (already potted - small) other
than Richter's in Canada (we will use them also but have had bad results
with buying live plants from them, perhaps because of customs/border
If located in the Southeast, USA, great, but not required. Some species we
need will be relatively rare/tropical (not what you would find at WalMart,
 Any companies come to mind???
