I was given some agapanthus 4 years ago and in my ignorance planted them in a south east facing bed. A few flowered the first year but since then just leaves - and leaves. We are in a frost pocket but they have survived the winters. Should I dig them up and put in pots instead? I bought another pot last year and kept it on the south facing terrace but no flowers this year. I wonder if I over-watered it in my enthusiasm? I am very frustrated by them and would love some encouragement.
If was given two agapanthus this summer - one flowered beautifully the other not! They are in large pots outside my front door and still have green leaves. Now winter has hit us and it is minus 3 at the moment, what shall I do? Do I bring them in to the house/garage or can they stay out?? House is warm and garage cold and quite dark. Help please urgent! Thankyou
my agapanthus is frostbitten-help!leaves look like braised leeks bless em do i cut em back or let them do their own thing?
Reply to hathor: not sure if your plants are growing in pots or outside in the soil. The leaves of my agapanthus growing in pots almost always die right back in winter. I cut these all away at compost level, and new leaves will develop in spring.

Do you treat dwarf agaphantus (variety "Streamline") the same as the larger variety? I over winter my large agaphantus in my unheated garage and it's done fine for years. The dwarf one (the foliage does not die back) spends the winter in the same location but will not flower.

Agapanthus is definitely one of my favorite landscape plants here in sunny southern California. It does well with neglect and heat and yet produces flowers that remind me of delightful English cottage gardens.
I have agapanthus which have been growing happily in their pots for 5+ years. Last summer they produced only a very few spindly flowers. Now, to feed or not to feed? What should I do to encourage more flowers this year
Hello,
I have an Agapanthus that's been in a pot for 5 years now. I'm thinking of dividing the plant into two as it's flowered poorly the last two years. But I'm wondering just how I'm going to get the plant out of quite a big pot without damaging the plant? Does anyone have any useful tips on how to do this effectively?
thanks,
Max

can you devide agapathus in late autume

Wait until it has died back-but remember they flower better when crowded and root bound.

I planted agapanthus tubers last september/october but having not grown them before I'm not sure when to expect to see some growth. I have alot of bluebells planted in the same area, do they look similar?
