My sons being good boys did what I asked..weed the front bed..the bad news is they were so proud of the huge fat weed root they pulled up...SIGH it's like a 35 yo peony.Herbaceous. It was not in a great location and was in I had wanted to move it ..but it's in pieces now. there are a lot of good chunks that do not have growth eyes..Can I encourage them somehow if I pot these up?

You have little to lose by giving it a try. Concentrate on the pieces that contain both a little stem and some root. Many times they will grow when no eye is apparent. Al
