I pretty much buy my plants and seeds as well as pest control items and garden supplies through mail order.  

For dahlias, we like:
Dutch Gardens   P.O. Box 200, Adelphia, NJ 07710
Swan Island Dahlias  P.O. Box 700, Canby, Oregon 97013

For  every kind of vegetable and flower seeds imaginable:
Vermont Bean Seed Company, Fair Haven, Vt.

For perennials we like:
J. W. Jung Seed Co.    335 S. High St., Randolph, WI 53957-0001
     (Check out Jung's cold hardy roses)
Bluestone Perennials, 7211 Middle Ridge Rd. Madison, Ohio 44057
Gilbert H. Wild & Son, Inc. GX-892 Joplin St., Sarcoxie, MO 64862-0338

Although much disdained by real Vermonters who don't need fancy garden stuff, I've found some  helpful and reasonably priced items at:
Gardener's Supply Co.   128 Intervale Road, Burlington, VT 05401-2850

By far the most helpful gardening book I've found is:
The Garden Primer by Barbara Damrosch, New York: Workman Publishing, 1988
