Click on links below to jump to that question.
The new leaves and buds look like they have burnt and then slowly the whole branch dries up and becomes crispy.All the leaves and the bud have fallen off the plant. Does the plant still have a chance for survival?
I suspect transplant shock from root disturbance and drying out of the soil and roots. The soil surface in the pot appears dry.
Water it well and it may perk up and survive. Give it a week or two to show signs of improvement.
I suspect a water issue, too much or too little.
Does the planter have drainage holes or are the plants sitting in muddy wet soil and getting root rot?
If there is good drainage, then are you watering enough or are the plants suffering from water deficit/drought stress as a cause for the drying up of the foliage?
If the watering is as good as can be, what is the condition of the soil? Is it a fertile potting soil with good organic matter content that retains soil moisture, or sandy or course and porous.
I wish to plant marigold plants among my vegetable garden where I have planted seeds of parsnips and seeds of purple carrots along with plants of lettuce and tomatoes. Are marigolds compatible with these plants??
That appears to to, either, bird or squirrel damage. I will include two articles that will help:
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.
This article will help with the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/marigold/growing-marigold-flowers.htm
