There is already existing, of course, this thread :
http://www.srgc.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=6490.0  which was called "germinating now" but which I have re-named to make it clear that photos of seedlings are more than welcome   ;)

A start  to your project, Trond!

OK, I'll bring my camera along when I inspect my seedpots! Hope the names are correct then :-\

Tim Ingram has today contributed a fine selection of  seed pix - thanks Tim!

656 pictures so far..... :) .... only about 4500  to go before we have a really useful  number of them-  if you are collecting seed for the SRGC Seed Exchange, for any of the other Exchanges, of just for your own use- if you can, please take a photo of those  for which you are confident of the naming - on  graph paper of a known size, or alongside a metric ruler, to show the scale of the seeds.  Save these as a file under 200kb, ( and approx 750 x 600 pixels in size)  name the picture with the name of the plant and post them to the Seeds to Scale pages : http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=4426.msg283843#msg283843

David Pilling, who contributed  this article to the PBS site : http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/PhotographingSeeds      and built the machine:
http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/PhotographingSeedsTwo  ...... has been adding some seed photos-  thanks, David.

When seed arrives from the various seed exchanges or merchants, how about taking time to photograph the seeds for this Seed ID   project? http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=4426.0

Or, as the seedlings grow, what about pictures of the developing plants for the  Germinating Now thread? http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=6490.0

With a little work from forumists we can add greatly to this resource........ :)

Mistakes can happen in the exchanges Maggi, so might it not be better to restrict these excellent databases to seeds/seedlings from plants that have been identified?

Yes of course, Ashley - and that is stated in the beginning of the Seeds to scale  thread-  I was rather hoping that folks might already have read that and be going with pix of seed of which they were sure.

'Seed Identification : photos of named seed varieties.


This topic is exclusively for posting photographs of named, fully identified, seeds.
The object  is to work towards as full a listing of verified seeds as possible. '

And may I add my yearly plea for germination information in the Germinating Now thread.

  Gotta love the photos, but they mean so much more with some "how to" commentary!

From Stephen Barstow's blog page :

"Seed seed and more seed"
216 pictures of seed mostly collected in my garden during autumn/ winter 2014-2015:

 Seed not shown with a scale measurement- but very interesting nonetheless.

Continuing thanks to those kind people sending pix of seed types - much appreciated.
I feel that these pix can be  of interest simply as items of beauty , quite apart from their usefulness in ID.  8)
