A good seed company

Having seen Thompson and Morgan trashed on this site, I wonder if anyone can recommmend a good company? I am so disappointed with the overall quantity of commercial British seed, I mostly save my own these days. I've even started knocking on people's doors if see something new......
Everyone likes butterflies. Nobody likes caterpillars.
All good germination, flowers and veg seeds.
And Premier seeds on ebay along with Simply seeds who I think are excellent.
A little edit. I forgot Nicky's nurseries who have some varieties I couldn't find elsewhere.
Where have you been buying from and how did you find them disappointing? Quantity or quality of seeds, germination rates?
I have always found the Organic Gardening Catalogue (www.organiccatalogue.com) has a more generous seed count than most and good germination rates. Sarah Raven is excellent, Jellito for more unusual varieties, the latter is actually German, I think.
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
I bought some from Sarah Raven this year and the germination rates have been pretty poor.
