    Brian is too smart!  I’m the plant pathologist, and the ‘yellow stripe’ comment should have been mine.

    Oh, but what a pretty intruder! Is this a native or an invasive? Chris Durrill

    It follows that the toads I am digging up while planting might cause spicules in the foliage?  Last night my son James and I dug up quite large one nearly 150 g and about 10 cm long.  I will take up the camera then while planting later this week.

    If toads should turn out to cause spicules (or spikkels) as does the bulb and stem nematode, that will really will upset the plant pest apple cart.
