Q.What Am I Doing Wrong? Planter W/flowers
I just created two planters made up of several different flowers- marigolds, blue my minds, and the taller plant in the middle (not sure what it is). I am in Florida and these are on my porch so they get about a half days worth of sun. I used soil that the garden center recommended. All of the plants look wilted and sad. I’ve watered them every other day. What do I need to do to revive these plants?

I would think in Florida and in shallow pots they need to be watered every day. Do those pots have drainage holes? If not, their roots may be suffering. You can always put them in pots with drainage, then set them inside the outer container. But remove them to water.
Also, Blue My Mind and the marigolds prefer full sun.
I would check for those conditions. And good luck!
