I have listed some sites with veggie seedling images

lakedallasmary(8 - North Central TX)September 14, 2006

I think it would be great to create a seedling image gallery for the FAQ section. Until then, I have gathered up some sites that contain images of vegetable seedlings. This took me a while, I do hope someone finds it useful.

On some of these pages you have to scroll down a bit to see the seedling

various veggies - some dead links and enlarging images is very slow




- the only one I could find, like to find them just as they emerge

- third photo down looks like a rutabaga to me. I just plants some a few days ago and looks the same.

- I am assuming turnips are on the right

feel free to post links of veggies/fruit I missed.

a lot of the seedlings look very similar since they are in the same family

I like the ones that show the true leaves. The coytledons (generic leaves) could be anything. ;)

I think if we set up a image gallery, we should post both, the sprouting leaves and the true leaves. I was going post both but I got tired, and finding seedling images on the web is not as easy as it would seem.

Both are useful, but when you don't have true leaves yet, you need something to go by. Once they get true leaves it does become sort of obvious though. Those look just like the mamma plant.

I am so impatient after I plant seeds, I never think they will sprout. I just think the seeds all rotted in the soil. I planted seeds 6 days ago, and it was wonderful to see baby radish, beets, peas, and rutabaga today!

Feel free to hunt the web and post the ones with true leaves, or post your own garden photos. Unfortunately, many of the seedling images past seed leaf stage are of diseased plants.

Wow, Mary, very good work!

Here's a guide that has been helpful in the past. It took me a lot of looking to find it then. It provides a collection of photo's and there's other good "stuff" on the site.


Here is a link that might be useful: Vegetable Seedling Photographs

If those who frequent this forum take photos I will add them to the FAQ.

Just click on "My Page" for your username and then click on "See my Journal". You can add the photos to your own personal journal, then inform me by giving me the links by messaging me privately.

Those seedlings looked great. Mine look so leggy in comparison (and I grow them under lights).
