I recently planted marigolds and dragonsnaps in the front of my house. I also purchased two hanging baskets. Now all of the flowers are wilting, especially the hanging baskets. I am not sure on what it is that I should do to save my flowers.

When the weather gets hot, or if the plants are in hot afternoon sunshine, they can dry out quickly. Hanging baskets need to be checked for water needs on a daily basis; plants in the ground should be watered deeply every 3-4 days. Aside from watering, there's really no insect or disease problem that would attack plants in the garden and in hanging baskets. Good luck with your new flowers.
