You obviously use the name ragweed for a different plant to me, Owdboggy. I don't know just what it is but it looks as if it is of garden origin.

This is Ragweed, Ambrosia artemisifolia. You may be thinking I meant Ragwort which has a yellow daisy flower.
However looking at it again, now I am not so sure.

OK, yes you are right, Owdboggy, that is what I was thinking about. I don't think I know this plant.
