Started godetia by seed and planted them in my walkway. About a week ago I noticed that a plant looked wilted and gave it water. the next day it looked real bad and my husband sprinkled some diazinon granules around a few of the plants. This morning I noticed another plant looking wilted which is around 4 to 5 ft. away. I don't know what is attacking these plants, could you please help!!!

In my experience godetia is really best treated as a cool season annual similar to spring planted pansies because not only does it truly resent hot weather, but it also tends to bloom itself out or exhaust itself early in the season. If upon close inspection you can't find any evidence of insect attack, then I would suspect they are simply giving up as the heat of summer comes on. I'm sorry about your plants!
