When do I divide Agapanthus

Thank you so much for all your help, I think this site is absolutely brilliant for relatively inexperienced gardeners such as myself. 

When do I divide Agapanthus

Posted: 29/08/2014 at 17:27

Been in the same pots for 4/5 years, and feel they're now being strangled as the roots go round and round, and out the bottom.  Having said that, the display has been phenomenal this year, so how do you make the decision?

I have two fantastic pots of Agapanthus, but they have been in the same pots for about 4 years now, and really look as if they are trying to escape through the bottom.  Is it time to divide them, and, if so, when do I do it?

Collecting seed from Cerinthe

I have grown Cerinthe from seed this year, but as there weren't many seeds in the packet I wondered if it would be worthwhile trying to collect them from my plants for next year?

Blueberry Tree

Yes, Daintiness, we have the right soil, and I have all the shrubs you mention growing in abundance.  Lynn, thank you for the tip on pollination - I'm sure the children could afford 2!  How close would they need to be to each other though?

Blueberry Tree

I thought I might ask my children to buy me a blueberry tree for my upcoming birthday - but where to plant?  is it best in the garden (south west facing), or on the deck in a nice big pot?  And, are they difficult to cultivate?

Potting up Agapanthus

I know that Agapanthus should be kept tight, but at which point should I take them to the next size pot?  I have two large pots, about 4/5 plants in each, now not only are the roots twisted round and round, they are trying to escape out the bottom!

Planting out Garlic

I planted garlic in a mini plastic 'greenhouse' last autumn and they are now about 6 inches high.  At which point should I plant them in the ground?

A couple of years ago my neighbour gave me a crown of his rhubarb, and this year I am looking forward to picking it.  It has been covered up all winter, and now has plenty of young, pink stems.  Do I keep it covered, while picking it, or should it now be open in order to firm up?

Mottling on Japanese Azalea leaves

Posted: 31/10/2013 at 17:38

Although there are some nice buds forming, the leaves of my Azalea have brown stains and a lot of yellowy leaves.  Is it O.K.?  I would also like to move it, can I do it now, or must I leave it until it has flowered?
