how to grab selcted values from check boxes with Jquery, process array with php and make mysql query

Hi All,
I have a web search for where user searches for plants at http://www.rootsnantucket.com/duplicate-of-the-catalog.html 

when user performs a search, jquery passes the search term to a page that then refreshes the table with the new values.  The new table has a new column labeled 'print me'.  User clicks on plants interested in printing and the hits "print these plants".  I want the values of the checkboxes to be passed to a second page attached below that will then run a select query and then create a new table with new plants.

I tried searching for "astil" which pulls up a bunch of plants.  I check some plants and then click print and an empty table gets returned to the viewer.  The values aren't being passed to the query, and are not being output.  

Any guidance or links to pages with a similar solution would be amazing.  I've spent way too long working on this simple problem.

//table row code
<tr sprite="" id="Astilbe "><td>Astilbe 'Sprite'</td><td>12-15</td><td>Part to full shade</td><td>Shell pink flowers turning to rust cloroed seed heads</td><td></td><td>Deer resistant.  </td><td><input type="checkbox" value="16" name="id"></td></tr>

//jquery code to pass variables
<script>
$(document).ready(function() { 
        $("#tablesorted").tablesorter( );
        $("#cfContact").click(function() {
                $("#tablesorted").remove();
                $.get('plant-search-page.html' , {'variety': $('#variety').val()},  function(data) {
                    $("#searchDiv").html(data);$("#tablesorted").tablesorter( );
                });
        });
});
$('#reset').click(function() {
                location.reload();
            });
$('#printMe').live('click', function() {
        var selectedItems = new Array();
           $("input[name='id']:checked").each(function() {selectedItems.push($(this).val());});

            $.get( 'print-plants.html', {'id':selectedItems}, function(data){
                    $("#tablesorted").remove();
                    $('#searchDiv').html(data);
            });
});
</script>



//prin plants page code
<?php
$id=$_GET['id'];
$id = implode(",",$id); 
$sql = "SELECT * FROM catalog WHERE id IN ($id)";
$resultArray = $modx->db->makeArray( $sql );//put it into an array
echo "<table id='tablesorted' class='tablesorter'><thead><tr>";
echo "<th class='sortable'>Variety</th><th class='sortable'>Height (in)</th><th class='sortable'>Exposure</th><th class='sortable'>Flower Color</th><th class='sortable'>Bloom Time</th><th class='sortable'>Points of Interest </th><th class='sortable'>Print Me</th>";
echo "</tr></thead><tbody>";

foreach($resultArray as $item)//go through each record in the array
{//start looping through the data array

echo "<tr id='".$item['variety']."'>";
echo"<td>".$item['variety']."</td>";
echo"<td>".$item['height']."</td>";
echo"<td>".$item['exposure']."</td>";
echo"<td>".$item['color']."</td>";
echo"<td>".$item['bloom_time']."</td>";
echo"<td>".$item['points_of_interest']."</td>";

echo "</tr>";
}//finish looping through the data array
echo"</tbody></table>";
?>

thanks for your response, but I think that the values are already getting grabbed.  If I use firbug and watch what happens when I click "print these"  the parameters that are getting passed are  
id[]	12 
id[]	13

I think the problem is on the print-plant-page.html processor page because the params that are getting sent are not being out put back to the user.

Try changing your code

I think it's the way you are searching for your input box...

Tested here and looks good.. If that's not it, then we need to look at your PHP..
// From This
var selectedItems = new Array();
           $("input[name='id']:checked").each(function() {selectedItems.push($(this).val());});
/. To This
var selectedItems = [];
$('#tablesorted').find('input:checkbox').each(function() {
    var plantID = $(this).val();
    selectedItems.push(plantID);
});
