I have another question about my Agapanthas. Do I cut the flower heads and stem right back to the base or leave them over winter. Many thanks



I always cut them out at the base as soon as the flowers have faded - some people leave them to collect the seeds or because they think they look attractive.

I leave them until the birds have eaten the seeds and then remove them They can look pretty frosted. [well I think they can :p]

Thank you both for your replies, I haven't quite decided which way to go, I'll probably cut the stems down next month. Thanks again.
