PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Phlox paniculata Mixed|
|Garden Phlox, Perennial Phlox - Mixed|
|Perennial phlox does not usually come true from seed, so although these seeds come from the white and pink varieties illustrated, they could produce plants of almost any hue within the range from white to dark-pink. All very pretty, though, and they make a great cut flower!|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow in a pot of good quality compost, covering to a depth of 2.5mm. To aid germination, give the pot 2-4 weeks in a sealed plastic bag at 20C/70F followed by a chilled period in a fridge at about 4C/39F for 4-6 weeks, then bring into a temperature of 12C/53F for germination. Prick out seedlings when they have formed a pair of true leaves and grow on in individual pots in a warm, light place, but out of direct sunlight; then move to a sheltered spot outside until the large enough to plant out.|
