can anyone advise please,I put my agapanthus seedheads in a big polystyrene box
last year to keep them frostfree,put them in the shed,today took the lid off and WOW
I thought I had lots of maggots,but the seeds had started sprouting,they where
damp as well,but now what do I do with them. thank you
I can imagine your initial shock, maggots yuk! I would pot them up in seed compost in 3" pots now, about 1/2" down. Stand the pots in water until compost has soaked it up, you can see when it's enough because the colour of the compost gets darker. Give them plenty of light and don't pot on until roots look out of the bottom of the pot. Agapanthus prefers to be a bit pot bound.
thank you swiss Sue, will do that to-day,I am amazed that this happened,
The poly boxes are what the chemist use to transport meds in,so I wont get rid now, I can do this every year cant I.
