Can anyone identify this flower, was growing wild on bank of River Great Ouse last summer. Leaves dark and appear leathery.

My first reaction is that it's Ragwort - but I can't be sure.

Sory about the delay in getting back to you all. Thanks for the prompt and

comprehensive response. I've been looking at pics on the internet of rapeseed,

the riverbank version is only knee high so, does the farmed version get a lot of

`fertiliser' to grow so tall?

Hi Charlieboy yes the field crop is fed massive doses of artificial fertiliser. I would never buy raped seed oil!

Thanks Moon grower
Not a gardening question, what's a good cooking, salad oil (other than olive) to use?

Personally I use organic sunflower oil when I'm not using olive oil.
