How to Grow Annual Phlox Plants in the Garden
If growing phlox outdoors from seeds then sow at the start of spring (before the last frost); or if you live in a warm area plant in the autumn. The phlox seeds should be lightly covered once sown. Phlox can be located in either a sunny or partially shaded part of the garden. They like to grow in a moist soil that is rich and of pH 6.5 to 7.
If starting indoors then do so about 7 or 8 weeks in advance. The phlox seeds should take one to three weeks to germinate in the dark at 12 to 18 degrees Centigrade. Transplant the Phlox plant seedlings into the garden with a spacing of 10 cm (small) to 45 cm (spreading varieties) apart.
Annual Phlox Care
Once the young phlox plants get a footing pinch them back to encourage branching and bushiness. They like to grow in moist soil so regularly water them. The blooming period can be prolonged by deadheading flowers.
