STEP back, Jack and the Beanstalk!
The Benford family has grown a vine that rivals even the wildest of fairy tales – to over 18 feet.
Father Stewart, 51, and sons Joshua, 12, and Dominic, eight, from Trowbridge, Wilts, planted their magic bean back in May.
Stewart said: “In six weeks it was all the way up the house.
“Now it’s growing along the gutter.
“It just won’t stop.
Stewart added: “My partner and I and our boys have always loved growing things and with the kids it started at a very young age.
“We’ve grown all kinds – from sunflowers to lichens – but we’ve never grown a runner bean that big.”
Joshua, 12, added: “None of us can believe it’s gotten this big – it’s like magic!”
