Under Green Pages there is a popular categories heading, is it possible to add Peonies to the list and the resulting nurseries? Thx

Here's how to get it added:

That list is auto generated. Whichever categories have the most companies are the categories that show up. If you know of more companies who sell peonies, add them, and when enough are there peonies will automatically be added.

Is it auto generated by the word in the business or something else. If Hidden Springs Flower Farm https://www.hiddenspringsflowe... does not have Peony in the name does it just go into a generic cat....thought I understood, but upon further reflection...not so much. Thx

Does that include plants not in the Main Product list?

It is just a checkbox that anybody can check off for a company. It does not take into consideration what they sell or what their name is.

You can edit the company and you'll see the possible checkboxes to check off.

Please, where do I find this checkbox? I looked and could not see it. Thank You!

I've checked several Peony sellers and none have a product listed except Hidden Springs. Can we add a checkbox for Peonies to the Main Products list?

I've added Peonies to the checkboxes (sorry, I thought we already had that as an option).

As long as you're adding things, I'm not seeing a checkbox for Seeds? Am I just blind (very possible Rolling my eyes. ) or is there a reason that's not included?

@dave,
I looked again. I checked (for example) Baker Creek and yes, I see a checkbox but then clicked on another company and no checkbox was available. Is the checkbox feature only for certain types of companies? Thank You!

It's only for ecommerce companies.

@dave I think my question got missed (probably because the very next post flagged you) so I'm going to try this again:

Do we want a checkbox for simply "Seeds"? Is anyone looking for companies based on that alone?

Heh, well at least one of us does. Smiling And I have seen several questions in the forums asking for recommendations for companies to order seeds from.

Thank you! There are quite a few companies in the green pages that deal almost exclusively with seeds, so I think it's a good addition (but of course I'm biased. Smiling )
