  • Lets talk about them




    I love phlox a super addition to any garden as it’s so versatile. As a stand alone statement in a vase or as a filler in bouquets. Phlox flowers all summer long and well into autumn. I'd even go as far to say that this an absolute filler staple for me now - I love it so much.



  • How to make these beauties grow



    Sow: Autumn for overwintering or spring 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Can be direct sown after frost has passed.


    How: Plant 1.5mm deep. Exclude light. If not direct sowing use soil blocks as phlox hates root disturbance.


    Space: 20-25cm


    Height: 60cm


    Where: Sun


    Days to Maturity: 55-65 days


    Pick: When 1/3 of the flowers are open. 7days+ vase life


    Hardy Annual

  • Notes from the garden



    An inadvertent experiment saw me overwintering phlox seedlings in my garden. They survived (-5 temps and snow!) and then thrived! I had phlox flowers in late October. So I will be 100% be autumn sowing again this year and overwintering.


    My absolute top tip for germinating phlox is to place (the sowed seed trays) into a supermarket freezer bag and leave in a warm place. As phlox seeds need complete darkness to germinate. I check on the bag every few days and once germination occurs move to the light. 


    Succession sowing highly recommended - Phlox starts to get abit spindly and tired after a few months of hard out picking. 


    Plants can tangle easy - Netting or staking recommended.
