Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Delicate in appearance, but tough in character, these spreading perennials will carpet your garden in rich colour and keep weeds at bay. These varieties are evergreen, with a height of no more than 15-25cm. Each plant can spread up to 45cm across and will form spreading mats of mid-green leaves which, from April to June, are smothered with flowers. This hardy rockery plant has many uses - underplant trees, shrubs and tall perennials, soften path edging or cover awkward slopes and banks. If you're tired of your lawn, why not replace it with a sea of seasonal colour that bridges the colour gap between winter and summer bedding.

Your collection will include Phlox 'Candy Stripe', Phlox 'Emerald Cushion', Phlox 'Emerald Pink', Phlox 'Fort Hill' & Phlox 'McDaniel's Cushion'.

Plant creeping phlox into borders, troughs and rockeries in any well drained soil. Choose a position in full sun or semi shade.
Once established, Phlox subulata requires little attention, and only occasional watering will be necessary during particularly dry periods. Deadheading faded flowers will encourage more blooms to be produced over a longer period. In summer, after flowering, stems can be cut back by a third to promote a flush of fresh foliage to be produced. In autumn, apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of the plant.

Seeds and garden supplies will normally be delivered within the time period stated against each product as detailed above. Plants, bulbs, corms, tubers, shrubs, trees, potatoes, etc. are delivered at the appropriate time for planting or potting on. Delivery times will be stated on the product page above, or in your order acknowledgement page and email.

Where an order includes both packets of seeds and other products, a maximum delivery charge of £7.99 will apply - regardless of the number of items ordered.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
