Agapanthus not flowering
Last year I bought and sunk two pots of agapanthus in the flower beds. One died and the other wasn’t looking well so I took it out and repotted it. Now it has loads of leaves but no buds or flowers. What’s wrong? I must add that I have never been able to grow them so I’m obviously doing something wrong.



I think it is probably a bit early for flowers. mine don't until late July. if they are producing leaves then it seems healthy.dont over feed as that will encourage more leaves and fewer flowers.

Thank you SBG. I did wonder if it was too early for blooms. Hopefully I will get some later on.

Only some of mine, in a warmer climate, have put up flower stalks; while others are still only leaves. It really depends on the types you have (evergreen vs deciduous).

Guess what? I looked at the agapanthus yesterday and it's got several flower buds! Great, that means I haven't done anything wrong.
Thanks for the input anyway.

It's at the first sign of buds that I start feeding mine on tomato feed. Not too much though.

Good idea, Sophie, I shall do just that but right now it’s raining and has been for several hours. More good news.
