Mid to late Spring Early summer (Late September /October early Nov)
Following a period of rapid growth the flower stalks emerge and full flowering occurs in about mid October. The fields are packed with bright yellow flowers which attract bees and photographers alike! Flowering continues for around 6 weeks extending into November. The seeds are set in pods which are progressively located up the stem. At the end of flowering the seeds begin to fill the pods and the seed crop is largely developed before the driest part of summer.
