My Marigolds are turning brown. What could be the cause of this? I do have a lot of problems with Japanese Beetles. But they don't seem to be bothering the Marigolds. Just all my other flowers. :-(

is there any webs on the plants? If so you could be experiencing spider mites. I get them big time and they only attack the marigolds.

not that I have noticed. I was deheading them yesterday, and didn't see any webs. Could it just be they have done their growing. And now are dying off? I just thought Marigold flowers lasted a lot longer then these ones are.

marigolds flower alot, but you need to pinch off all the dead flowers to look best.

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!

Are you watering them enough???? And yes, the spent blooms do need to be pinched off. [thumb]

I was wondering what part was turning brown?

Is it the flower that's turning brown?
Or leaves?

Flowers come and go, verrrrry quickly on the plants.. they like to flower alot..

Healthy Marigolds should grow well and continue blooming until first hard freezes knock them down. Could you post a picture?

I see you could be in my zone. In that case I'm voting for summer heat wave. That really does some damage to mine. I lost quiet a few this year. Infact I only have one left and it's not looking that hot either.

I have a few pictures of my marigolds that i planted this year. I lost a few after first planting around early May;bought a couple of 6 packs to fill in; they did Ok but didn't really fill in as much as I had hoped. I try not to over water these plants as they seem to better with a barely moist soil.

Merrill, what is the name of the white Marigold...Fluffy? lol! Great pix, cute dog.

You can go back to Photobucket and click on the Edit option above each picture, scroll half-way down the new page to Resize and probably select the 50% size, then click on the Resize button. Your pictures here at the forum will be automatically reduced as long as you don't move or delete the pictures from the current location at Photobucket. It will only take a few minutes to do all of them. [Wink]

The flower it self is turing brown. The leaves are doing fine. They look healthy enough. It has been quite hot here the past month or so. We just now got a break from the heat. So that could be it. Thanks for all the info.
