What's happened to my Marguerite?

Fidgetbones, that's lovely.  thanks for posting.  If mine grows back I shall take some cuttings.  I'm afraid I've always treated them as annuals and have been very unimaginative, but no longer!

Thanks all, I feel reassured and I will definitely look out for those varieties for next year.

Well I cut back to the stems, there seems to be new shoots coming off them lower down so I fed it afterwards, keep your fingers crossed!  I will be sad if I lose it, I always grow one every year and they give me so much pleasure...

Ok thanks for the comments - they live outside as I don't have a greenhouse, and some nights they don't get watered as I work 13 hour shifts - if I have two together then I get back late, have to sort everything out for the next day, have a shower and then go to bed.  Unless they're looking seriously dead of course, but if I'm going to be doing two days together I try and give them a extra watering.   I've never grown Shirley before, so perhaps the nighttime temperature has been a factor?

Any recommendations for varieties I can grow outside next year?

TPG beautiful planting and baskets.

Chicky - that's a good theory, I don't know if bees need to warm up like lizards, though.  I will have to do some research on the interweb.

Replacing a lawn

I bought miracle gro patch magic the other day and sprinkled some on my lawn yesterday. It's supposed to take 28 days to repair the patch,so if it works then I should have grass there by the end of August. I'll let you know.
