What do I prime the wood with first before I use the gloss paint?

I am a real novice at this kind of thing and i always go into our local paint shop and ask EXACTLY what i need - i would think your basic wood primer would do

Primer!

And if you are using actual gloss then you really need an undercoat as well to make the best of the gloss colour (even if it's plain white).

thanks Janh - I don't think I could face 3 coats on each of the posts! I think I will get a man into do it.

Excellent idea, Tracy! Mine are stained atm but if I ever decide to change to paint I think I'll get a man in too
