Ina.  From what I hear...  Don't bother.  The Dutch have been sending out 
lots of garbage bulbs this year.

I'd consider one of the  over the counter athlete's foot solutions--one of 
the azoles, miconazole, tolnaftate, etc as a solution and drench to see if 
it acted as a systemic.  Unless you have other systemics available.

Did you burn it or leave it where it could   infect the rest of your garden?
