One of my goals for harvesting seeds is to get involved in seed exchanges as well as to sell them. In preparation I have started testing them to make sure they will germinate. As soon as the seedlings have their true leaf I will post the images. Hopefully these images will help some of you identify your seedlings. Please let me know what you think.

  1. Wow so beautiful to see them like that..its amazing..

  2. Beautiful work on the site! I love the stages from seed to flower. Very interesting.

  3. Super site…I’m so glad I found you on blotanical. Wonderful pictures of flower/seed/seedling!! I have some seed that was given to me by my cousin for “English Hollyhocks”….I have no idea what these look like or how to plant the seeds but I planted them in pots when I started my peppers tonight…..we will see what happens.

  4. Hi Jackie, Thank you for your comments about my flower/seed/seedling images. I look forward to seeing your English Hollyhock photos later this year.. What is the name of your Blog?

  5. I’ve planted Shasta daisy seeds and as I am expecting to see seedlings, I wanted to be sure what was coming up were the daisy’s and not weeds. I thought gee, maybe I can find photo’s on the internet as to what the seedling would look like and Voila! I find your website with exactly what I wanted to find….what the seedlings would look like. Thanks for beautifully presented and helpful information.

    • Thanks gg, I’m glad my website could help. I have many other seedling images that I have not posted yet. If you need help identifying anything else send me another message and I will see if have have the images for you. Sherrie

  6. Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL site! I wanted to show someone online why I had my doubts as to whether or not what I got from a foxglove seed pod was real or just pod pieces, and your picture next to the coin was just perfect for showing just how tiny and unremarkable the seeds are! So far I’ve got three tiny seedlings from taking a chance on that seedpod, yay! :D

  7. Since my sister Pam and I both love growing flowers, we are always trying to help each other. She just sent me your site–it is great. Thankyou. Will you be adding to it? Hope so!


  8. I think your site is super helpful and informative. I am looking forward to the other flowers you will be adding in the future. Thank you so much for sharing the stages of each flower.


  9. So happy to find your site. Great photos & info. Thanks a Bunch!

  10. great site. thanks for the information. Do you have a photo of phlox seedlings?

  11. Thanks so much for these photos! I’m sure this was a tremendous amount of work! What is amazing is that seed sellers don’t do this! Your information eliminates much frustration over “is it a weed or what I planted?” Thank you!

  12. It’s 2016 and your site is still beautiful and helping people. I came in search of pictures to identify seedlings from weeds. I been sprinkling my dead heads of marigolds this year. I’ve always just bought new plants so I wanted to be sure of what their seedlings looked like. Thank you for your time and effort. Have a blessed life!

  13. It is wonderful to find just the kind of info I am seeking. I’m just learning about seed collection and needed your site to identify what a particular seed should look like. Thank you for the time, effort and passion it must have taken to provide this!
