Cultural instructions:

  • Phlox are supplied as plug plants and in order to give them the best possible start, pot them on into 7cm (2.82) pots using free-draining compost
  • Although they are perfectly hardy, the young plants should be grown on in frost-free conditions until large enough to plant outside
  • When they have a good established root ball, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days
  • Plant 40cm (15.7") apart to create a carpet of colour
  • Once established, phlox subulata requires little attention, and only occasional watering will be necessary during dry period
  • Deadhead faded flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced
  • Prune in summer if desired, the stems can be cut back after flowering by about one third to promote fresh foliage
  • Apply a mulch of well-rotted manure to the base of the plant in the autumn
  • Plant in March onwards in frost-free conditions
