Dad 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 at the top of the house.

“Now it’s growing along the gutter.

“It just doesn’t want to stop.

Stewart added: “My partner and I and our boys have always loved growing things and with the kids it started from a very young age.

“We’ve grown all sorts – from sunflowers to lichen – but we’ve never grown a runner bean as tall as this.”

Joshua, 12, added: “None of us can believe it’s grown quite this large – it’s like magic!.”
