Hiya Bob

I had a large group of agapanthus that became "thuggish" too and removed them.  Nothing else could grow there and a large bare space in winter developed.  Best for me in poor ground or in pots 

If they are divided without too much interference I find they will often flower the following year or even in late summer if done in late winter or early spring.

For me keeping cannas dry is the answer.  However I have large tubers/roots so perhaps with very small ones a little moisture to keep them going.  Easy for me I guess as mine will survive outside too.

Planting an azalea

Hiya gareth

Just to say don't plant too deeply.  azaleas need their roots near the surface.  

If its been outside then plant it now.
