Can you please tell me if I can grow butter beans in the UK (northwest), and if so, where I can get the seeds from?

Yes, you can. The seeds should be available through local garden centers, or you can grow them from store bought beans. However, these need to be the dry beans and not those purchased from cans. Soak them in water for a few hours and then sprout them in a jar with a wet paper towel, before planting them.
