my agapanthus fails to flower


By Lilypad

I have bought mature specimens from the Botanical gardens of Wales, bought a dozen other mature plants and lots of young ones but still none of them flower and often disappear without trace. Any ideas please. Thanks for the warm welcome Ian



do you plant them out in the ground? I keep them in thier pots so they stay pot bound. They like dry conditions so i am told.

It might be that some of the varieties you bought weren't hardy - a lot of them aren't.
As for flowering, they seem to like sun and don't like to be too wet and I've always had more success with them in the garden than in pots, contrary to Seaburn's experience.

How do I say thanks?
