Why Is My Agapanthus Producing Very Few Flowers This Year?

by Sarah
(Hayle Cornwall)

My agapanthus usually flowers really well bgut this year has produced very few flower heads. I have a bed with a number of plants clustered together and some plants have produced no flowers at all.

Should I dig up the non-flowering plants or wait for better luck next year? They are in full sun, sandy soil and are usually highly prolific.

Agapanthus
by: anlex ltd

Agapanthus are best off grown in a pot, because they like their roots to be restricted,I would recommend that you replant them in to a container.
When grown in a container this can be placed in the flower border and then put into a greenhouse or conservatory in the winter.

In the spring after the frosts the pot can be placed back in the garden and the container will be hidden by other flowers growing in the border. Whether growing agapanthus in the ground or a container always mulch in the winter.

Water agapanthus regularly during the growing season but sparingly during the winter, split large clumps of agapanthus every 4-6 years.

hope this help, anlex.
