Best grow in fall/winter.   The second best time to grow these from seeds is early spring.

秋冬播最好,初春次之.

1.Seeds soak in water for  one day.

1.種子泡水一天.

2.Fill a pot or container half depth with potting soil, wet the soil but not saggy.  Place the pot or container in somewhere warm.  Keep soil moist.   Seeds will germinate around 5-10 days according to the temperature.

2.用小盆以培養土直播覆少許土後澆水.  苗盆放在半日照溫暖處等發芽,注意保濕.   依溫度不同,約5-10天發芽.

3.Change to full sun location once the seedlings have true leaves growing.  Transplanting seedlings to bigger pot when they are 10-15 cm tall.   Start to apply fertilizer.

3.待小苗長出本葉後可轉全日照.  等約10-15公分高時可換大盆種或地植.  這時可以開始施肥.

It will take 2-3 years from seed to flower.  Older the plant more the stems to bare flowers.  When plant has bigger clump, you can propagate garden phlox from dividing plant clump in early spring.

從種子到開花約2-3年.  根系越旺越多直立枝條也越多花.  以後可以用分株法來繁殖.
