I have just recieved my plants through the post, with no instructions. Could someone please tell me how do I plant Phlox. This is how they've come. Do I need to soak them, or just plant them in soil or in a pot?


On plant Phlox paniculata

Same story as the Astilbes, I'd pot them up till they got established, then plant out.

When you do plant out full sun in an airy spot (prone to mildew) and again 12 - 15 inches between plants.

And they hate dryness at the roots with a vengeance, so water well during dry spells.
