Answer: Marigolds are sturdy little plants but they also sometimes suffer from transplant shock. I would give them a little more time to adjust to their new planting site. Marigolds will grow and bloom for a longer period of time if you regularly pinch off any dead flowers. Pinching them off will make the plants branch out and produce lots more flowers. Be patient with your marigolds. I think they will recover.
