Where do I buy seeds for hydroponics? And assorted questions.

I'm thinking about starting an indoor hydroponic garden soon, using a guide I found on Instructables for DWC. What are some good vegetables/fruits to grow beyond tomatoes and herbs, which would ideally grow at similar temperatures and light levels as tomatoes and herbs?

What are some good seeds to give as gifts?

This is for all of the green thumb mefites out there. I am looking for unique seeds to give as a gift to a friend who lives in southeastern Alabama. She is an advanced gardener with a degree in horticulture, so it should be something rewarding, but with a bit of a challenge I think. She enjoys interesting flowers as well as food goods. Any good suggestions?

Keep my garden growing

Where can I get quality seeds on line? Looking specifically for beets and chick peas (trying out mid-summer planting, why not). I have a broken ankle so I can't get to the garden store and they have garbage seeds anyway. Thanks!

Buying patchouli seeds

Where can I buy patchouli seeds right now? I'd like to plant them within the next couple of weeks, and the only online retailer I have found so far that offers them (a nursery in Indiana) had to toss out their batch and won't receive any more for at least a month.
