Germinate seeds at 21-24C (70-75F) on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Apply a layer of vermiculite, 1.5mm (1/16in) deep. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and cover to exclude light until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days. Check seedlings daily.Phlox can also be sown outdoors in spring where it is to flower, 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in rows 30cm (12in) apart. Thin seedlings when large enough to handle to 30cm (12in).

Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle, into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Remove growing points when 7.5cm (3in) high to encourage a bushy habit. Plant outside after all risk of frost, 23cm (9in) apart.
