Will Damaged Heather Come Back

Question From: C. Huggett - Blaine, Washington, United States
Q: My dogs have flattened my heather. It is in three large clumps . 1 1/2 clumps have been reduced to a great mass of stems. I cut the one bad one back to the roots and trimmed the other. Will they recover?

A: I can't answer that question Carolyn. If the roots are still alive there is a chance it will come back. Good Luck and Happy Yardening, Nancy
