Growing broccoli

Zone Me20 6da | tara442 added on June 20, 2016 | Answered

Last year I planted broccoli and when it grew very tall and had yellow flowers on.....even I knew it wasn't broccoli! A friend told me to pull it up as it was rape and would spread. I did so and wrote to the seed company who told me to give them details of the seeds. I had thrown the rest away by the time they replied! So had no details of numbers dates, etc. I have got more seeds this year and lo and behold, yellow flowers again, surely I can't be that unlucky. Can you clarify, before I pull them all up again, that it DOES NOT have yellow flowers? Many thanks
