I love Phlox, but prefer the old fashioned ones without stripes; they have a density of colour and smoothness of tone that completely beguiles me
Phlox are best from root cuttings or division done over the next month or so. I must admit I've never seen seed for them.
Mine dont seem to have any spare growth at the base, just the flowering spikes, maybe I am mistaken about the seed heads?
Well, there are phlox and phlox... I grew the annual (I presume) called phlox of sheep, from seed with the most stunning colours. Will def grow this again
They are absolutely beautiful!!! I've got 4 phlox plants, young ones with about 3-4 stems in each plant!! Will mine grow as beautiful as yours, I wonder??
They will Fluffy!.
I have just ordered some perenial seeds in a gorgeous blue colour.
Tks Lyn. Is it esy to grow seeds? In the greenhouse /windowsill?
Chicky.... your plants looks beautiful. There is 1 red phlox of mine which started off beautifully. 3 weeks away and the flowers and leaves died off. It's just about recovering now after some tlc. Couple of them had mildew!! Sigh!!!!
I have never grown them from seeds, mine were bare roots from Parkers.
Made big flowering plants this summer, the seeds, we can only try. I will sow them in the greenhouse, then probably bring them in the conservatory, I dont really know yet.
