Annual Phlox

Half-hardy Annual

A beautiful annual which blooms throughout a long summer season. It produces large solid heads of bright rich colours on dwarf bushy plants. Admirable for filling out summer beds sowing in drifts etc, and the flowers are splendid for cutting. Autumn sown plants make fine spring flowering pot plants for the cool greenhouse. Flowers early summer to autumn.

Sow from late winter to early summer 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in John Innes Seed Compost. Make sure that the compost is moist but not wet and seal in a polythene bag, exclude light until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days at 13-15C (55- 60F).

Transplant when large enough to handle into 8cm (3in) pots. Pinch out the growing points when 8cm (3in) high to ensure a bushy habit. Later plant out 23cm (9in) apart into rich well drained soil and full sun. They can also be sown outdoors in spring where they are to flower.

Sufficient seed to raise approx. 70+ plants
