The Q&A Archives: Best Time to Divide Phlox

Question: I would like to know when is the best time to divide the taller version phlox, not the lower growing kind? I would like to divide it to give some of it away. Jerry Kenney N. Easton, MA

Answer: Divide your phlox in early spring before growth begins. Move them to a sunny spot, keep them well watered and give them a dose of complete fertilizer to make them happy. They should still bloom this summer for you.
