I have several Gazania rigens in a pot they have remained in the same size and no flowers, I have used fertiliser and in the sun. what is wrong ? thanks
It is quite possible that they are over-crowded in their container. Have you tried splitting them up yet? If they are rootbound, then they may not be getting the proper watering.

The leaves of my Gazania plant turn yellow and the plant dies.
This would usually indicate a nitrogen deficiency. The thing is... It is rare to see a deficiency in these plants unless they are in rocky or sandy soil. It could also be that the pH of the soil is too high. Iron sulfate will bring this down a bit. This will help the nitrogen become available to the plant again.

I have several Gazanias planted in a newer flowerbed with well-drained soil. One Gazania has half its petals eaten away and I was wondering what pest it could be and how to combat it in an organic, possibly homemade, way. Thank you in advance.
It could be a number of pests or caterpillars.
Neem Oil is good treatment is organic; safe for people, pets and bees.
Landscapers planted them twice. Dying -- started out 3 now up to 8, and looks like more every day. It’s been very hot here and they’ve been on a drip system daily. I checked the soil and they seem to be getting enough water. I don’t know what else to do. Suggestions?
Perhaps the soil is remaining moist constantly without a dry out. This will cause a fungal infection as you are describing. Ideally they will only need water once the first 2 or 3 inches are completely dry.
A fungicide may help here but you may need to plant in a different area while the soil is being treated.

Looking to specifically identify the pictured gazania which we have as ground cover. Looking to obtain another flat somewhere in order to fill in spots damaged by frost. Note the bluish green leaves ( don't want a species with dark green leaves). Any and all help is most appreciated.
I found one that looks very similar called 'Pink Trailing' Gazania rigens.
These gazinias have thrived in this location for about four years. Suddenly, one began to dry up and die. I inspected it for insects since the plants around it seem to be fine. I didn’t find any. Now, as you can see in the pictures, the gazinia next to it is beginning to do the same. Is this possibly an underground insect or a fungus that I can’t see? Thank you for your help. I don’t want to loose all of the plants.
These are very drought tolerant, and susceptible to root rots. A fungicide and less water may be in order.

I got them a week ago and had been watering them daily for 3 Days till I found out it's for every three days. Now the leaves are turning ash white and the plant is drooping. It's very hot where I live. Currently it's 90°F This is my first time taking care of a plant and I really don't know that much about gardening.
It is likely that they have been overwatered. This will cause root suffocation and disease.
From this point, it will be best to start with fresh plants, and make sure to use potting soil instead of native clay. Clay will not allow to gas exchange in container, and will suffocate plant roots in a pot.
