My husband accidentally sprayed my balloon plants with 24D They look awful! Can I cut them back to save them or are they gone forever?

Cutting them back may help, but there is a great chance that they are dead. This is unfortunate, but that is what the chemical was designed to do.

24D will kill nearly all broad leafed plants. You can take the wait and see approach, but this may call for a trip to the garden center!
