Why is there no 2" - 3" and 4" - 5" choices?

Because when there were those choices, we didn't know where to put a 4-inch flower: In 3-4 or 4-5? Maybe we should have an "Other" box with a write-in field.

I guess an "other" box would be more specific, but it might be hard to search by that criteria.

Current Choice
Under 1"
1"-2"
3"-4"
5"-6"
7"-12"
Over 12"

Suggested Choice, since there are a large number
Under 1"
1"
1.5"
2"
2.5"
3"
3.5"
4"
4.5"
5"
5.5"
6"
6.5"
7"-12"
Over 12"

This is a good point.

We have (ignore the numbers in paranthesis):

Under 1" (1144)
1"-2" (1145)
3"-4" (1147)
5"-6" (1148)
7"-12" (1149)
Over 12" (1150)

We should add

2"-3"
and
4"-5"

That's my opinion.

Dave:
Would you be able to add to "Petunia Flower Size"
Miniature: Less than 1.5" XS

There's a group of Supertunia Minni petunias that are much smaller than Milliflora 1.5"

Thanks
