SOLD OUT Phlox (Phlox Drummondii Moody Blues) 175 seeds (#1510)

Phlox drummondii (Drummond's Phlox) was discovered in 1935 in Texas, USA, by English plant explorer Thomas Drummond. An annual phlox, it occurs naturally along roadsides from Canada to Florida.
It’s widely grown as a summer bedding plant, where its spreading habit makes it perfect for filling gaps at the front of a border or as part of a summer container display.
Phlox 'Moody Blues’ bears flowers in a variety of shades of blue. It has a compact, bushy habit, making it perfect for growing in cottage gardens and informal bedding displays, as well as pots.
Best grown in loose, acidic, humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Part afternoon shade is appreciated in hot summer climates. Prefers even moisture. Tolerates some soil dryness.
Plants may be grown from seed started indoors about 6-8 weeks prior to the last spring frost date. Space plants 20 cm apart. Pinch main stems of young plants to stimulate branching. Deadhead spent flowers promptly to the extent practicable to extend bloom. Propagate by seed. Plants will easily reseed in the garden in optimum conditions.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Sow outdoors, February-April, where they are to flower, 0.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered.
Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days.
Thin them to 15cm apart.
Water well until plants are established and keep weed free. Or sow indoors, April-May, 0.5cm deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist.
Transplant seedlings, 5cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions.
Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-June, 15cm apart, when frosts are over.
