    Depends how big they were,  small ones would be ok,  large ones not so.

    Yes depends on how big you may need to cut them back. Welcome.

    Keep watering ... gallons and gallons of it ...

    As they’re small you just need to cut them down to 2’. And water really well and often.  As soon as they root well,  they’ll put in too growth.

    @mikelearmond Every cut you make on a Laurel bush will reshoot in two places. This is the best way to get them to grow more densely. With plenty of water they will soon get going. People make the mistake of paying for large Laurel plants, small ones will catch up very quickly. Try to cut them back to a pair of leaves if you can.
