How to grow:
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 seedlings into the garden with a spacing of 10cm (small) to 45cm (spreading varieties) apart.
