The previous owner of our house was an avid gardener and I'm truly enjoying this new hobby. I have so far listened closely to Maryanne's suggestions and have added mushroom compost and cedar mulch. Things have been going well (thanks Maryanne :))
Question, I have a nice creeping variety of Phlox and also a much taller, stalk like type of Phlox. THey are quite tall (3 feet) and they look and smell lovely. Will they last all summer?They are starting to lose their flowers, will they grow back. Also, since they are tall, some have fallen over (quite a few). Are these the type of flowers who benefit from a cage? I'll try to remember to post a picture in the day light.
