Agapanthus caulescens ssp angustifolius / Seeds

A good hardy sub-species of Agapanthus from Swaziland, with narrow green leaves and tall stems with bright blue flowerheads in July and September.  The flowerheads grow up to a tall and graceful 1.4m in height.  This is a good plant for the middle of a border, and also performs well in pots.  The strong stems make a good cut flower.


Agapanthus prefer sun and well drained soil.  It is relatively drought resistant once established.

 

Pack of 20 seeds.  Sow in spring to autumn.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the label.

Sow Sow in spring to autumn.  Sow in a tray of seed compost, and cover with compost or vermiculite.   Keep at a constant 18-24C and germination takes 2-4 weeks.  Pot on when seedlings are big enough to handle and plant out in the second or third season, protecting young plants from frost.   Plants generally flower in the third season.   
Grow The leaves and flowers die down in winter, when the dead material can be cleared away, and they start growing again in spring.  Plants should be mulched over winter to protect from frost.  Plants grown in pots should be sheltered in a greenhouse over winter.  Mature plants can be divided in spring.
