To post a photo using a pc, upload it from your camera to the pc.

Click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where your type your post. 

That brings up your Computer files and you can Browse through them until you find the image you want.

There will be an error screen in between which you should just close by clicking the X in the top right corner, then just wait and your pic should come up will take a while depending on the bandwidth of your connection.

Good luck - if it doesn't work for you give us another shout!

They won't transplant at that size, but they'll flower soon and then die off as they're annuals. 

If you want them elsewhere shake the seedheads where you want them to grow next year  - you can tell when the seeds are ripe cos the seedpods will rattle.

I've just picked every other one of mine at the sharp green stage - they're going to make a lovely gooseberry and elderflower pie - the rest will stay on the bush to ripen into sweet golden yellow globes of loveliness (Hinnonmaki Yellow).  The bush has been surrounded by seaside windmills stuck into the ground putting the fear of God into the blackbirds (well, that's the theory ... ).

Any idea what this is....

Dd ((hugs))  It'll be fine   I'm sure they don't expect perfection (even if you do) the first time - how would they see all the improvements in the following years?

Is it nesting on your house?  I used to love watching the martins build their mud nests on the farmhouse wall by my bedroom window when I was a child

Think we need a bit more information about your garden Teddybearrowley - whereabouts are you and what's the soil like?

What sort of trees, how big and where?
