    Not a dandelion, can't name it but definitely a weed

    The way it comes out the ground looks dandelion-y but the rest of it doesn't. Would agree with nut.

    Think it might be a  Hedge Mustard - have a look here and scroll down http://www.teagasc.ie/publications/2010/55/55_Guide_to_Identifying_Tillage_Weeds.pdf

    I've been looking for a guide to weeds on arable land for ages - I knew there was one in existence - glad I've found it.

    Dove's right, I couldn't remember the name but that's the one I was thinking of. It can grow quite tall and if it doesn't fall over makes a good dried decoration. But it's still a weed

    Thanks for the guide I am still unconvinced thou, I think i will have to take more photo's. Or wait till some flowers they all seem pretty uniform in growth. There will be less questions thou thanks to the guide.
