I bought the big head marigolds. Now they are the size of quarters and some are just black blooms. They just don't seem to be blooming continuous. I am watering them and putting miracle grow. What am I doing wrong?

I'd help the plant renew itself by first cutting off any open flowers, along with their stems and then trying to keep water off the foliage (which can cause fungal diseases). I think the next flowers will be larger. Hope so!
