:And, if so, was it especially rapid?
: Infected plants will often (and literally) keel over in a relatively short space of time when infected by vascular-wilts. Perhaps you can be the best judge of this.

Yes! it happens literally overnight. A healthy looking shoot is just flat on the compost next morning - it still looks totally ok but just pulls away below surface level from the root section. On examination there is a constricted brown area just where it leaves the crown. I thought at the time that the Botrytis was a secondary infection invading after the shoot had fallen.
