Marigolds will benefit from deadheading though it is not necessary. Just snip faded blooms off with a sharp pair of pruners or scissors. Doing this not only makes the plant look nicer, it encourages more blooms.

For best performance, feed marigolds with a long-lasting, slow-release flower fertilizer at time of planting, or every week or two with a water soluble liquid fertilizer.
