Steamy sun rays

Zone Harrisburg, North Carolina 28075 | ghwenny68 added on May 27, 2019 | Answered

I live in North Carolina, and lately it has 95 degrees and over. Is the steaming sun the reason why my marigolds and perennials are dying?

They usually do well in high temperatures I do see what looks like clay soils and this will be the cause of slow growth here. They will grow much faster in a soil with more texture. Try adding organic material or a little compost before planting to help out.
