What kind of fertilizer does a phlox need?

Great question!

Garden phlox does best in a spot with full sun. And, avoiding overhead watering will help keep the leaves clean from any disease. I don’t fertilize my garden phlox. Too much nitrogen and you will get taller plants with few flowers. Instead of fertilizing, just give them some compost in early spring.

Thanks for writing!
