They are also renowned for being brilliant container and pot plants- perfect for a kitchen window sill or within a basket.
The taste of this thyme blends perfectly in stuffings and stews and will give a citrusy lift to any pie or chutney.
Runner Bean Lady Di Thompson & Morgan
‘Lady Di’ is an exceptional scarlet red flowered variety that produces long slim and blemish free pods of the highest quality. The harvest is rich and prolonged. The long slender beans are slow to develop seeds which means the pods can stay on the plant for longer before they become tough, which gives you more time to harvest.
Resistant to disease and a wonderful heat tolerance, they will produce pretty, fiery red flowers which develop into 25 to 30cm long fleshy and stringless beans growing 1.7cm wide. They will remain stringless even when matured.
Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit ‘Lady Di’ is not only edible but will make a colourful garnish to enjoy, and the pods are delicious when they are young and tender.
Plant in a position with moist, fertile soil in a sunny and sheltered plot. Sow successionally from April to July. If planting outdoors, wait until the last frosts are over.
Sow your seeds early indoors and this will give a faster and more reliable germination rate. Sow at the end of April 4cm deep in 7.5cm pots filled with multipurpose compost. Water and leave to germinate on a sunny windowsill for up to three weeks. Before planting out, put them into a cold frame to acclimatise them to the outdoor conditions.
You can directly sow your bean seeds outdoors from mid may to mid June, sowing 5cm deep next to a cane for support when growing.
This wonderful variety will not only be a new favourite of yours, but will also encourage vital insects into your garden.

They are also wonderful for attracting pollinating insects into your garden.
Sow from later winter to mid spring at a temperature of 15-18C in good quality seed compost. Sow on the surface of your compost and firm down gently. Keep your soil moist but not wet and do not exclude any light. Germination will take from 10-15 days.
When your seedlings are large enough to handle, acclimatise them to the cooler outdoor conditions for up to 10 days before planting out. Transplant outdoors in a sheltered and sunny position with moist and well drained soil at a distance of 15-30cm apart.

Sow your seeds in flat bottomed drills at a distance of 5cm. For crops in succession, sow seed every 10 days.
