Agapanthus are seen everywhere down here from starring on St, Michaels Mount to growing in the fields to private and public gardens. No need to see them on the Nile This is prob the home of agapanthus
i really think there is way too much perceived mystery about growing agapanthus....they are easy if given sun and a warm spot. Patience may be needed.
They grew and flowered profusely in my rich but sandy loam so much so they had to be thinned out and plants, both white and blue, were given to neighbours and friends. I keep them limited now in just one or two spots in the garden.
the advantage of individual potted plants is that they will eventually...not talking years here.... make several eye catching plants to place in different parts of fhe garden. 5 mature...mature don't forget.....plants will need separating at some stage anyway rather than just repotting. Seems an awful waste to cram them in one container. I think those plants will easily llift and perform just the same standing alone...they wont even know they have been moved
visit any gc in summer and you will see potted agapanthus for sale...they haven't taken years to flower???
