How

Sow direct where they are to grow as phlox do not transplant well. Completely cover seeds with Yates Seed Raising Mix as they require darkness for germination. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period.

Care

Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting, and fertilise regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food.  Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Water at base of plant to avoid disease. Mulch around plant to retain moisture and protect shallow roots. Remove spent flower clusters regularly to promote new blooms.

Storage

Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
