Care instructions

The Agapanthus plant needs a well-drained but moisture retaining soil. However it will not tolerate water logged soil. It does best in a warm, sheltered position in full sun for most of the day. In colder areas it is best protected over winter with a dry mulch of sand or straw. Apply a 15-22cm deep layer around plants in autumn or early winter and remove in spring before growth starts. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
