we have a self set plant which looks as if it might belong the marrow family. It had a white trumpet like flower and now has green spiky balls. Could you please give us any idea what it could be



A photo would help, so we can see the whole plant and the leaf shape as well as the seed heads.

Datura stramonium, thorn apple. Interesting, but poisonous.

That's it. Datura stramonium, a present from a passing bird.

Just pull it up and compost it if you don't want it.
