I have looked, I have never bought, mainly because they are always mixes and fairly random. I was tempted by 'Land Life' they sell mixes for particular soils and situations, which seems sensible.

carlmc is in Preston UK, Louis. Eden bros do ship world wide, but could well be they have American native wildflowers.

I do not know the others mentioned, but Sarah Raven's gardens are just down the road from me. She caters to the fairly well to do Sussex gardener, her stock is reliable, from good cultivars, tastefully presented, has a certain 'snob value', and is priced accordingly
