Plant your bush bean seeds outdoors directly in the
garden after your last frost date. For a quicker start, you can soak your
seeds 1 to 4 hours in warm water. If you soak the seeds too long, they will
split or rot and will not germinate! Germination is improved when soil
temperature is above 65 F. Plant in 2 to 3 weeks intervals for a steady
harvest until about 3 months before first killing frost in the fall. Plants
can grow 12 to 24" tall.
Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil
or you may experience poor germination!
Requires rich fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or
straw around base of plant.
Beans do not like soil that is too moist. Water during dry and hot spells.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when
transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.
Pinch or cut the pods off carefully to avoid damaging the plant. Pick
every few days for tender beans. Frequent harvesting also encourages plant
to produce more pods.

Top crop beans were always my favorite and I keep them going every year from saved seeds.
