The Product Search Filters are one of the many things that makes LeeFee Market unique, it’s designed to help you focus your search to find the plants etc that will fit your particular needs and growing conditions. The more boxes you check off the tighter your search becomes and the fewer plants will meet your criteria. Decide what’s most important to you – Zone, Color, Scent etc and use maybe the 3-4 most important aspects for your search. This may help you find other plants that you may not have even known about or didn’t realize would suit your purposes.
- If you’re looking for outdoor plants, we recommend starting with your growing zone (found under Environment), then adding the other filters that are important to you. f you’re unsure of your zone, you can find it here.
- There is a “Search” box above the Filters that you can use to also search for products by keyword.
