dead head them the best you can and they will produce new flowers for you.

Thanks but there are only spikes left,nothing to dead head.

Cut the spikes off down to the leaves. If there are no leaves at all then they have probably finished. In that case pull them out and look in the garden centre for a tray of marigolds or pansies or whatever you can find that will see the summer out.

They do need regular feeding with a balanced fertilizer, and religious removal of the spent spikes, for repeat bloom, especially in containers.
