Plant up a classic combination of edibles and ornamentals in your patio pots. Amateur Gardening’s Kris Collins is partnering runner beans and nasturtiums

Step one

As always, choose the largest pot you can. Canes (one per plant) need to be secured. Note the hooks I have attached to keep things in place. Use garden twine to tie the canes

Step two

Fill the container with multipurpose compost or veg-specific growing media. This should help secure canes in place. Leave enough room to accommodate the plant rootballs

Step three

Plant the runners against a cane and place the nasturtiums in between them. Water well. Keep an eye on developing runners so they grow up their allotted cane
