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.
I split mine in Spring, just before they come into growth .
Mine didn't read the rule book which says they won't flower the year they're split and virtually all have flowered.
I have to say, I've never worn gloves and I've been handling compost for over 40 years , and for over 25 years ran my own gardening business. I only wear gloves if something is particularly thorny.
I bought another 3 agapanthus recently from Pine Cottage Plants who hold the National Collection of Agapanthus and they say in their leaflet
" Whilst the very best plants are produced by growing them in the ground, excellent results and flowering can be achieved by cultivation in containers."
