I have been making a lot of Granny squares, I am not great at this and their edges are a bit wobbly and they are all edged in different colours. I want to neatly join them with one colour, is there a good stitch for this??

You could do a round of SC to give a border and use that as the anchor for a variety of joining techniques eg picot/brides etc
You could also do a 'final round' of the granny pattern and join as you go with that one. I'm a fan of join as you go with the final round - it isn't as scary as it sounds.
