Buy grass seed online?

Following building work we have two areas needing seeding:
  1. Some former lawn that got dug up and the turf stripped (50-100m2)
  2. A car-park, built with soil-filled grid system (about 200m2)

I don't know if it really makes any difference where/what I buy? Any recommendations where I might get seed online?

None of this is for a show lawn, something tough and resilient would probably be best as once it's established, it's not going to get much attention beyond mowing.

    My online orders have been very hit and miss. For utility 'tough as old boots' grass that is not very sensitive to sowing time, check in the Supermarkets. Tesco do a brilliant one.

    Trying to keep out of there at the moment but I think Wilko do something similar... they have the weigh-your-own too but I never know if it's any good.

    I have bought a box of seed today from Wilkos for a few little patches that need thickening up. Never got it from there  but as we are limited with choice at the moment, I thought it was worth a go for the few pounds it cost
