Is there a way to add the Limit option: "Only show plants with at least one picture" ?

That would be useful when you browse a genus (for example ; all the primroses) and try to identify a plant. Then you only need to see the pictures.

Thank you

If this could be done, it would be so wonderful. At present, if you browse by characteristics and try to look for alpine plants, you get a long list of Acantholimon species and nothing else because that genus has so many species and all of them are suitable for alpine gardening. We have photos of only 4 of those species, so the option Andre's proposing would show a lot more alpine plants.

I agree it would be helpful to browse only plants with photos when trying to identify something.
There was some discussion about that earlier.
http://garden.org/thread/view_post/970102/

Looking at the database if I select a type of plants I am able to search for recent photos; the choices are

Time: Today | Last Week | Last Month
Sort by: New | Popular | Buzzing
Show Vendor Images: Yes | No

If the "Time" portion could be extended to include "all time" ...well, I am not a computer genius so have no clue if that is even possible. *Blush*

I'm not a computer genius either but I would say this could be done in about 10 seconds coding ;-)
