Hopefully they will do well for us,they've germinated well for you so I read that as a good sign. I loved my runners last year only got a few frozen ones left now, looking forward to cropping them already. I'm fairly new to veg but love growing the edibles. 

Think we got 9 small plants about inch high, they are in the cold frame.

Honeysuckle - what next?

I'd keep them in the modules until their roots are more developed. I had a go once and taking cuttings of honeysuckle but never had a go from the berries. Lovely plants

Picked up some these as small plants today, this will be my second year of growing runners. Didn't know that you can get self pollinating runners, the reviews that I've read said that they should do well in the poorest of weathers.

Has anyone had a good crop of them in the past?

Looking really good Baz, loads of plants! What's the plant in the middle of the first pic, it's got very strange looking leaves?

That's lovely LesleyK, if ever I see a bee like that I'll do the same

To pinch out or not pinch out?

I've not grown dahlias but I usually pitch out a lot of  things. Maybe do a few and then do the rest if it works? Don't think I've any harm with the ones that I've tried, wallflowers, sweet williams, and snap dragons. I suppose you might get more flowers on shorter stems maybe?
