Q.Marigold Flowers in Deck Pots

Anonymous added on July 10, 2011 | Answered

It has been very hot here, 100 degrees lately, and all my marigolds are dying. They are all brown and shrivelled up, yet they still have yellow flower tops. I water every day when it is very hot. Why are they drying up and dying?

Even with watering everyday, they are still not getting enough water. In heat like that, you will want to water twice a day and water the pot for several minutes to make sure it is thoroughly soaked.
