The strange things you'll find growing in a Grantham garden
Grantham gardener Eleanor Craythorn has grown an unusual vegetable - a kind of squash known as Promboncino.
The WH Smith’s cashier assistant saw the plants on an Italian TV programme and having researched them on the internet, obtained some seeds from TV gardener Sarah Raven.
Eleanor first grew the squash four years ago and this year used the seeds to plant some more in April, watering them one to three times a week. Now, she says this is the biggest she has ever seen them - about a metre long.
