Plants Trampled by Dog
My bleeding heart, lupine and sedum were trampled and broken by my dog. Will they recover, and what should I do to them? Should I remove all of the broken stalks?

The bleeding heart will recover by next year. The lupine may as well. The sedum will recover this year. I would wait to see if the stalks start to die before removing them on the bleeding heart and lupine. You can try staking them back up and they may still bloom. The sedum, take the broken stalks and stick them in the ground. They will root and grow new plants.
