Agapanthus coddii / Codd's Agapanthus / Seeds

A less common hardy Agapanthus that is well suited to UK gardens. It has narrow green leaves and tall stems with pale blue flowerheads with deep blue stripes along each flower.  Flowering is in July and August and the flowerheads grow to 0.8-1.0m in height.  This is a good plant for a mass display or the middle of a border and makes a good cut flower.  It can be grown in a pot, but needs a big pot and plenty of water in the summer.


Agapanthus prefer sun or light shade and rich well drained soil.  It needs fertilizing in the spring and water in summer for the best flowers.

 

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

Sow Sow in spring to autumn.  Sow in a tray of seed compost, and cover lightly with compost or vermiculite.   Keep at room temperature and germination takes 6-8 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.   Fertilize in spring and water in summer for the best flowers.
