I have just planted garden phlox into a large pot. Can I transplant this into the garden before winter. And how late can they stay in the pot?

What might be a good approach for you is to simply sink the pot into a garden bed before winter weather arrives. This way you can unearth the pot in the spring and grow your phlox in the pot all next summer. By sinking the pot into the garden you'll be protecting the roots from winter damage.
