this past week i lost 5 baby azalea bushes to the lawnmower when my boyfriend cut the grass. I cried and threw a fit but it didnt change anything (HAHAHA) so i am turning to you guys to see if there is any hope of brining them back. there are only little stubs left with no leaves (poor things). is there anything I can do?

they may well come back (i've pruned my pretty hard (like down to the ground) and they have come back before), but they won't bloom next year. it'll take a second year for them to bloom. azaleas bloom on the previous years growth, that is why you prune them right after they flower. put some bricks or a fence of some sort to keep the mower away next time.
