I have always used a thumb and finger, tweezers for the larger individual  planted ones.

Can I plant these out now?

Andy, putting pics on from your iPad is the easiest of all.

click on the tree icon along from the smilie, then tap the 'select' then select 'photo Library' then select 'photo Stream'  tap on the pic you want to use then tap 'upload' when you see the photo appear, tap 'save' if you use the 'photo stream your photos will come out the correct way up, sometimes they come out sideways, but it doesn't matter, we can sort that out

If you are interested in the Eden Project, there is a long waiting list, you would need to get your name down and be prepared to wait, maybe a couple of years, there are people from all over the world waiting to come.

Talkback: How to make a composting trench

We have those little green bags, whilst they do bio degrade, I would tip the stuff out directly into the trench. Don't put anything cooked in there though, only veg waste.

Driveway costs?

We did the same as Dove, we dug all the old stuff out to a depth of about three inches then laid a double sheet of weed suppressant fabric down first. A few tiny weeds try to take hold but are easily pulled out or sprayed.  As we are in the West Country we chose granite. Wasn't expensive in the big dumpy bags. Ours looks quite smart too

Well there you are Chicky and Verdun. 

Pat, do you always go into latest posts on your iPad, I think maybe you switch it off and when you come back to it it doesn't move, you have to start again and refresh every time.

Punkdoc, Couldn't you and Mrs P move down here, no neighbours troubles everyone is much more laid back.

Has anyone made their own greenhouse staging?

No probs Mark, don't think you would want it really, it's so rampant, I dig out bin fills of it every year
