It doesn't work that way. Once the directory is deleted it no longer has a name, it no longer exists. You can only recover files that were in the directory.

I prefer foremost for doing that:
http://foremost.sourceforge.net/

or testdisk as mentioned earlier.

Boot into a knoppix live CD, it includes both foremost and testdisk.
