Hello, I've been gardening in Ireland for three years. Apart from many years growing veg and herbs, my main area of interest has always been wildlife. I am a qualified habitat manager, and worked for many years in an arboretum- tree questions? Come here! I love em! (my knees are too bad to climb them any more though :() I have a very small plot plus polytunnel in North Tipp at the moment, and am looking forward to my second growing season here.

Thank you all for the welcome! A small question: I'm a bit of a luddite, my mobile phone is proper old school- it makes phone calls, and sends text messages, which is all i usually want. My wife's phone can take pictures... How can I take a photo, and upload it to this site? Do I need to do it in a certain format/file? And how would I put it up here?

Don't know how to upload from a phone to here but for photos on the site from my camera I use Photobucket. I find it dead easy.

Also I upgraded my Luddite phone for a free I-Phone. The I-Phone is absolutely light years ahead of my old one.

you will need the usb lead that came with the phone to upload them to your PC, or if you have a card reader in your pc you could do it that way. Then upload them to photobucket or some other hosting site and use the link they give you to upload them on here. If you get stuck give me a pm and I'll explain it in more detail.
