Before planting your Agapanthus bulbs, ready the soil, if necessary, by mixing in ample organic matter. Soil preparation isn’t always necessary if drainage is good. If Agapanthus bulbs are left sitting in water, they will rot.
When planting your Agapanthus bulbs, make sure they will receive full sun to light shade. Plant the bulbs 2" deep and 4-6" apart. After planting, water your bulbs generously, soaking the soil. Roots and top growth will form within a few weeks.
Flowering plants need care throughout the growing season, to keep looking their best. Agapanthus flowers develop during the summer and last for weeks. Feel free to cut blooms for arrangements as this will not hurt your plants. Provide supplemental water, as needed in the spring and summer. The soil can be allowed to dry out in the autumn and winter.
After your Agapanthus bulbs have finished for the season, leave their foliage in place; don't cut it off. The leaves will gather sunlight and provide nourishment for next year's show. Water lightly, if at all, during the autumn and winter. Bring your Agapanthus indoors when night temperatures begin to drop to 5¢ªC.
