I would like to see more info about garden company recommendations. Something like what they have on this wildflower.org page. Scroll to the bottom where they have boxes labeled "Sales", Product Types" and "Delivery Format". It could be set up just like the database, where anyone can check off the information that they are familiar with. I would also add a box that says "specializes in". A company my sell a wide variety of plants but specialize in something like native plants, aquatic plants, xeric plants etc.

Yes we would need a comment or "other" box, that we could add info that is not in the primary list in each category.

Yes, and I'd still like to be able to sort the list by things like whether they primarily sell seeds or plants, and what sort of plants they specialize in.

nodding Very good.
