At its best:

Jul, Aug, Sep

This container display is proof that simple arrangements can produce dramatic results. Agapanthus plants produce beautiful sky-blue flowers on long elegant stems throughout the summer months. The plants are easy to grow and thrive in pots. Although it can take a couple of years for them to establish, your patience will be rewarded with an abundance of flowers.

You will need

  • Agapanthus plants x2
  • Large, square terracotta pot
  • Crocks
  • Multi-purpose compost

Add crocks to the bottom of the pot, then fill two-thirds full with multi-purpose compost. Agapanthus thrive best when not planted too deeply, so plant them just below soil level. Stand the pot in full sun. In autumn, move the pot to a sheltered spot and protect the crowns with a thick mulch of straw.

Agapanthus flower best when they're slightly pot bound, so plant them in a container smaller than you'd usually use for two plants.
