    We have a large number of yellow flowered weeds in our lawn - they are like buttercups but have split flowers - they have thick stems with nodules on them
    We treated the lawn with food/weedkiller, 2 months ago - so where did these invaders come from and what are they ?

    You have made over 8000 posts, yet cannot upload a photo here?

    At a guess (and it will have to be a guess) I'd say these are celandines which may have been dormant when you treated the lawn.

    Why are you treating the lawn with food and weed killer in the middle of winter? Best time (if you really think that it is necessary) is to treat the lawn in Spring - which is possibly due in about a few days time.
