Will plants damaged by roofers bounce back?

bobomcdo(z4 MN)July 24, 2013

The house next to ours is getting a new roof, and there have been falling shingles, wood chunks, etc. landing on my flower garden. Among the plants bent and broken is my false blue indigo, which I love. A few of the stems are snapped and dead now. Will it survive, do you know? I hope I'm worrying for nothing, but it's killing me that some of the plants are being killed. My morning glory is finally reaching the top of my fence and now some of those vines are dead, too.

Most perennials can survive some damage like this. Definitely prune off any damaged or dead parts, keep them regularly watered & give them a lite feeding of something like Miracle Grow (2-3 measures of MG in a 5 gal. pail of water & give each plant a pint of this solution).
