I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

It is difficult to assess the chances of your plants based on that description. I suggest you keep the soil moist but not soggy as that is deadly. In time if the initial damage was not too severe they should be able to return to normal growth.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
