AVM Photographic Index

The listing below is interactive. Select a year and press "Apply" to see a listing of photos for that year.  Multiple years may be selected.  To select multiple years you can  hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on the desired years.  To select all years, click on a single year then hold down the "Ctrl" key and press "A" .  Optionally add the first few letters of a plant or design name and the years you are searching and press "Apply".   

The photographic database only has a few recent years.  We need more volunteers to supply data for the missing years from earlier AVM issues.  This involves finding the printed photo index from earlier issues of the African Violet Magazine, usually the December issue, and typing the data into a spreadsheet.   If you would like to help, please send an email (or a spreadsheet for a missing year) to avm-index@avsa.org.


Thank you Terry Klemesrud for the 2013  - 2015 photo Indices.   Sue Hoffmann so nicely supplied us with photo indices for 1998 through 2008.   Obviously more are needed to complete the project.
