Planting Conditions

Agapanthus like moist but well drained soil, made from clay, sand, chalk or loam, at any pH. They should be planted in a sunny spot with at least 6 hours of sunlight a day, and that spot should be sheltered to ensure their best performance. When potted, Agapanthus are more floriferous, however they can work well planted in a bed or border too as long as the soil is freely draining.

Watering & Feeding

Agapanthus love being a little more on the dry side than most perennials, meaning they won't need watering as often as other plants in the garden. Because of this, they should also be planted in soil that drains well - and this watering can be performed once or twice a week. If you're wondering when they should be watered in their flowering season, check the top inch of soil, as if it's dry then they could do with a water. They should be fertilised with a fertiliser of a 1-2-1 ratio, mainly in Spring and Summer.

General Care

Agapanthus are low maintenance plants overall which makes them perfect for newer gardeners. They won't survive through a cold Winter outside and so will need protecting in a greenhouse throughout the months where frost is a risk. When you come to plant your Agapanthus, dig a hole twice the size of the pot, place the plant in and fill in the rest with compost. A roughly 3 inch layer of mulch should then be applied around the base of the plant, and then watered until the soil is saturated to make sure that the plant will establish in its new location well.
