Sow annual phlox from late winter to late spring on the surface of a good seed compost and gently firm down. Do not cover the seed. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 18-20 (64-68F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 10-21 days.


When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When phlox plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun on moist, fertile, well drained soil at a distance of 30cm (12") apart.

Feed and water regularly, particularly during dry periods, until young phlox plants are fully established. After flowering, lightly shear the stems to encourage lots of fresh new growth.
