All useful advice, but I might add that to flower well, Agapanthus do like to fit snugly into a pot. You'll need to divide them every 5 years or so as if they become too pot bound, then flowering decreases substantially.

It is also absolutely VITAL to wear gloves when handling the roots of this plant, particularly with the roots. The sap of the Agapanthus is toxic and can cause severe stomach cramps. Gloves should be worn at all times when handling earth/commercial garden compost, even if you have had a Tetanus injection.

My agapanthus has outgrown its pot and it is very big had 16 blooms this year, how do I split it up and when ?

Just bumping this up Brian as no one has replied yet. 

I'm not an expert on Agapanthus but I'd think you could split them now while the weather's still favourable - just take out the pot and split with a knife (or spade if it's a big one)  and re pot the pieces. Keep them out of harm's way till they're settled. If I'm totally wrong about that I'm sure someone else here will help.
