Various catalog info resources on the net:
Cyndi's List (700, alphabetical) via WWW:
Also available via ftp from: jam.cog.brown.edu pub/gardening
*SOURCES* index (180, by topic) via WWW (at The Garden Gate):
GardenNet via WWW (alphabetical, can order some online)
But better than all the net put together is:
Gardening by Mail, by Barbara J. Barton.
Houghton-Mifflin: New York, 1994. $18.95.
This outstanding resource is a directory of
mail-order resources for gardeners in the United States and Canada,
and includes seed companies, nurseries, suppliers of all garden
necessaries and ornaments, horticultural and plant societies,
magazines, libraries, and a list of useful books on plants
