Thanks to all for the answers to my Gardenia problem, now I have another question on planting Phlox seeds. We live in the Chicago land area, zone 5 and my Phlox are beautiful and I ordered several varieties of Phlox seeds, when should I plant / start them, now or in the Spring. Thanks.

Thank you for sending us your gardening question. It is easier to grow phlox from cuttings/transplants than from seed. However, if you wish to try seeds, do so in the Spring.
