How to take care of Agapanthus Blue
Agapanthus Blue dislikes waterlogged, heavy soils or those that are prone to drying out, avoid rich soils as they promote weak growth vulnerable to frost-damage. Agapanthus Blue loves a well-drained soil containing organic matter and a sunny position. Agapanthus Blue are best grown in containers, spacious pots and/or raised borders and when they become root bound they will flower more profusely. Keep Agapanthus Blue frost-free for winter by ensuring the crowns are covered with sand or bracken or move pots to a frost-free location until spring. Once established feed Agapanthus Blue in spring with an Organic Fertiliser and during the summer with a liquid fertiliser. Let Agapanthus Blue die back naturally; the yellowing foliage will provide nutrients for next year’s bloom. No need to cut down in the autumn, as the seed heads look attractive over winter.
Please soak the bare roots for 12-18 hours (do not exceed 24 hours). This allows them to take up the maximum amount of water without doing any injury to the plant.
