Lol.... there are quite a lot of these trying to grow near my aubrieta ... good for vegetarians ;o)

i was thinking along the lines of a buttercup. if its a parsnip then I'd go with one of the wild ones.

could it be one of the meconopsis type poppies?

Pot one on and see what comes of it TT

I think a GoY member sent me some poppy seeds ... which I scattered around ... maybe 2009 ...

Could the seeds have remained 2 years in the soil and then benefited from the freezing winter ?

poppy seeds can stay dormant for years

That seems the most likely explanation. Thanks :o)

Could be Mecanopsis cambrica which is a lovely invasive poppy.

thats what i was thinking of mg,
and tt if you have recently disturbed the soil this would account for it growing now.

Thanks MG and SBG ...
... yes they are in the soil which has been disturbed ...

I'll let you know on this question thread whether they grow into poppies or parsnips ... Lol.
