I just wanted to thank you so much, firstly for dealing with my order so promptly (ordered Thursday, delivered the following Tuesday!!) and for sending me such beautiful, healthy willows. They are now in place and I look forward to my living hedge, screening my driveway from my neighbours. Thank you again for such fantastic service and I will be glad to recommend you to my friends.

Despite the fact that French Beans are sometimes known as String Beans, Blue Lake is actually stringless!
These defy any Summer drought and remain sugar sweet and tender when cooked; eaten raw they make a tasty and crunchy addition to Summer salads. But their versatility doesn't end there as they are perfect for freezing - and any left at the end of the season can be dried and the pure white beans use as haricot beans!
Grow against a trellis or bean rack or up netting - interplant with peas or runner beans.
An excellent variety to grow in cold greenhouse or polytunnel.
