I'm worried it's poisonous! It's just started growing in my orchard, and this is our ninth summer here!

It's about 6 - 8 inches high, and is growing next to my hazelnuts.

It looks a bit like an arum. Reminds me of lords and ladies but its not that.

I can't see any leave but it looks a bit like Lords and Ladies to me (arum)

It's lords and ladies, it is slightly toxic, but not to bad. I thought dd1 had eaten a berry from it in autumn when she was 2, clanked NHS and they said it was fine. She matter told me she hadn't eaten a berry, but said yes because she liked saying yes when I asked her things.

They change so much!

Bastarding Lords and Arsehole Ladies. They are popping up all over my garden. They take some digging to get them out.

Really difficult to get rid of but probably fine in an orchard.
