So I bought these twos and planted them in front of the tomato plants to deter pest and nematodes - but they turned out like this after a 102 deg F yesterday (today is also the same!).
When I dig their hole to transplant from pots, I put in few chicken manure pellet at the bottom and watered in.
Can someone let me know what's wrong please?
Thank you very much

|I can't confirm if it's the particular marigold you're asking about, but I suspect the damage to the blooms is purely heat-related. I've seen it before on some of my other plants during hot spells, especially when the temperature ramps up quickly (like it has this week). Make sure they don't dry out, but I would expect the next lot of blooms to be normal if we don't have another hot spell.

|Hello @whoatemylettuce. I believe those are French marigolds (Tagetes patula). They are listed in the plant database.|
