    Help! My Marigolds are dying and I can’t figure out why. They get regular watering and Miracle-Gro. I’ve tried Safers 3-in-1 but no luck.

    Any suggestions?

    Gee, an opportunity to make wild guesses! We can all make fools of ourselves until somebody stumbles upon the obvious origin. I'm game. Been there, done that. How close are these to a lawn that was recently sprayed for this or that control? Like, are there flags in the neighbor's lawn? What has been in this plot prior to now? Contorted foliage is a "growth problem", as in kill something by interrupting the growth process. The spots on the foliage suggest spatter from lawn control stuff. That's my analysis, and I'm stickin' to it!

    Nex-x-x-xt!

    Or maybe cold or sun damage, the latter being possible when plants growing in shade are moved to full sun without any protection being provided.
