Plant of the Week: Phlox
For sheer look-at-me wow factor it's hard to beat a border phlox. Tall and imposing among other flowers, they're the undisputed stars of the midsummer show when bursting into a froth of showy multicoloured blossom with a delicious honey-sweet perfume. Look out for pure white 'David', lovely azure 'Blue Boy' and lilac 'Franz Schubert'.
Give your phlox a rich, moisture-retentive but free-draining soil in part shade. Taller varieties are best staked – get your supports in place around now and they'll disappear among the foliage. Or grow more compact varieties like the 'Flame' series in shades from light pink to deep purple - also good for containers.
By now, winter pot cyclamen, so popular at Christmas time, will probably have reached the end of their flowering, and they could be looking rather sad. Give them a rest now, by putting them under a greenhouse bench and slowly reducing the watering until the foliage dies down.
