    I think it's something in the mustards/charlock etc family.

    looks like everyones stumped. I even took some to the garden centre and they didnt recognise it

  • I think it might be winter cress (Barbarea vulgaris) or at least something similar.

    It looks very similar to the green manure I grew over winter and that was mustard of some description.

    I agree with Barbarea vulgaris.

    Thank you all for your help, I still don't know if its a keep or a dig up yet.

    It will flower soon then you can decide. It's one of a large number of yellow brassica type flowers, mustard, cabbage, rape.........

  • It's a wildflower or weed if you don't want it. I expect the bees will like it, but if  you don't then take it out. image
