Q.will buttercups regrow from root fragments
When I hand pull to get rid of buttercups, some white fibrous root fragments broke off. I would like to know if it will regrow from the root fragments. I have completely removed the crown/rosette and the runners. It is difficult to remove all the root fragments. Thanks.

They can, but if you keep an eye out for new plants and remove them as soon as you spot them, this will exhaust the energy reserves of the remaining root portions and they will die (and be unable to grow anymore new plants).
