Is it possible to search the plant database for photos of, say, Salvia sprouts only?

Hmmmm.... looks like "seedling" isn't an option in the search criteria. I tried the main salvia page and searched "seedling" and didn't get any hits.

Anyone else know a way?

We actually don't have any photo searching at all. The search engine we have is always searching for plants, not the photos of them. Then once you find a plant you can view all the photos. I'm always open to adding new ways to find things but I'm not sure what it would look like to search for galleries like that.

I guess that would have to be a separate new search engine.

But this is a good time to remind people to take photos of seeds and seedlings and add those to the database too.

I agree
Because there are jillions of pretty Salvia bloom photos! :)

No worries Dave, it was worth asking.
