Growing Golden Wax Bush Beans

- Sow seeds 2cm deep and 5-8cm apart, allowing 60cm between rows.
- Mulch between rows to conserve water – and reduce weeds.
- On hot days, prevent vegetables from wilting by watering early in the morning, and if necessary again in the late afternoon.
- Beans mature quickly and are ready to harvest 8 to 10 weeks after planting.
- Sow at regular intervals to prolong the harvest.
