Hi Graham,

does your printer really require a pdf file for each plate? If so, you find an 
instruction here: 

If not, you can use a single pdf file. Make sure your images are really 
greyscale, then create a new colour in Edit > Colour > New. Insert the name 
of the spot colour (your printer will know it) and check "Is spot colour". 
Use this colour for your green and send the single PDF file to your printer.
