This spring I planted several garden phlox plants that have not seemed to take well in our flower bed. I am concerned that I may not have planted them deep enough though some seem to be doing fine.

Is there any way to revive perennials that don't seem to be taking well into their environment?

Perennials like Phlox can be sheared back to help promote healthy new growth. If you want to dig and reset them, wait until this fall when the weather is cooler. This way they won't suffer from transplant shock. Best wishes with your phlox.
