|Sometimes all you need to do to get and keep your creepling phlox looking good is to trim it back a few inches from the soil level in early spring. This will encourage healthy new growth and lots of flowers. You can feed your phlox with a general purpose garden fertilizer such as a 10-10-10 or use a foliar spray such as Miracle Gro.
