Sow 2-3 seeds 1” deep and 2-3” apart in moist, organically rich, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Whether direct sowing or transplanting, thin out strongest starts to every 18-24” in the garden as true leaves establish. Beans need light and consistent watering but, when doing so, water as close to the root as possible to avoid saturating greens known to cause root rot and mildew. Plants thrive from a top layer of mulch to help cool soil and roots. Avoid nitrogen-rich fertilizers which will cause excessive vegetative growth with minimal bean pod production.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHow to Grow Top Notch Golden Wax Bush Bean\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMost varieties of bush bean are ready to harvest at about 50-60 days from sowing or once the pods are 3-5” long. Harvest often to encourage fruiting and to ensure pods do not dehydrate on the vine. Although some pods may pull cleanly from the vine, use a knife or shears for more fibrous pods to avoid accidental damage to the plant. Like many crops in the garden, it is widely believed that beans are best harvested in the morning for optimal sugar content.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eAbout Top Notch Golden Wax Bush Beans Seeds\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eOne of the oldest known wax beans, Golden Wax was first introduced sometime around 1871.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eThere have been many variations over the years, but Golden Wax was also known as Topnotch or Rustproof Golden Wax.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eGolden Wax bean is a bush type plant that produces excellent yields of golden yellow wax beans.
