I found the list, but don't see how to find nurseries that are within 100-200 miles of me. If I don't know the name, and don't want to look at every company on the list, there must be a quick way. By state, maybe?

We don't have that functionality, at all. The Recommendations feature is intended for mailorder companies only so searching by location was never a priority. It's something we may extend into the feature in the future but for now it's not there.

Could I put in a little teeny nudge here for including a sortable category for the types of plants they specialize in?

None of the feature requests for the Recommendation feature are going to be simple additions so I can't really create them on the fly. When I originally created it, I made it as a place where we could post a simple review of the companies we liked. I didn't really envision it as a big feature that would replace or compete with the other comprehensive collections of companies that exist elsewhere on the web.

But I think at some point in the future we're going to want to upgrade that feature with all the wishlist items we want and make it a lot more useful and comprehensive. It's just one of those things we need to think about and then in the future I need to carve a week off my schedule and get busy with it.

Dave: would it be possible to have a little space on our profile page where we could list nurseries for our city/state? I'd love to be able to click on a Florida member's profile and possibly find new nurseries to check out! Green Grin!

If several people in the same region were ambitious, they could make a few lists for their region, and post a sticky thread in that regional forum.
