Hiya katydid 

i assume they are in pots.  

You will have opposing views on this but no matter what perennials you have or how hardy they are, I would always pot on at least twice before planting out in the garden soil. The bigger the plant you put out the better it will survive and thrive in your garden

Looking at it again....enlarged.... I think it will go straight into a pond basket as it is.  Untangle the roots, trim those too long, and pot up.

I have also planted/submerged in bigger container until the leaves unfurl and start to float.  Then into the pool, on a brick or two.  Again when leaves float you can lower it further into the pond.

Advice on planting agapanthus

I expect your roots are pretty small sioned...?   So I would not overpot them. ,just enough to accommodate the roots and pot on as roots fill their pots.

Ok, Lyn, I would trim those roots then if you cannot pull it apart.  One thing though, if you have a fountain keep the Lily on the calm water side.  (just a word about your mum.  Gone through a similar thing lately with my mum but when funeral is over you will feel less agitated and have a calm sense of closure )

Well Denno

 you have some of the ingredients for a nice planting there. The grasses will associate well with hebes and heathers ( if they are the winter flowering types....that do well in alkaline soil)

maybe add a couple of pinks too.....for the foliage if nothing else, which is a nice blue colour.  A couple of lavendars too?  I think a tall grass at the back like miscanthus  morning light would be superb.  It has a light fountain like habit with fine narrow leaves
