Buy agapanthus bulbs in the spring and plant them in pots yourself - much cheaper.  They're available from most garden centres and nurseries in the spring, or look online.

Honey fungus

Posted: Yesterday at 10:37

I wouldn't even dig out the stump - I think it will do little that is useful.  I know quite a few lovely gardens that live along with honey fungus and there's a wide range of plants that it doesn't seem to affect. 

We don't have it here, but several gardeners on this forum do and I'm sure they'll be along soon to share their experiences and some tips.
