How to take care of Agapanthus Africanus
Agapanthus Africanus 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 Africanus loves a well-drained soil containing organic matter and a sunny position. Agapanthus Africanus are best grown in containers, spacious pots and/or raised borders and when they become root bound they will flower more profusely. Keep Agapanthus Africanus 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 Africanus in spring with an Organic Fertiliser and during the summer with a liquid fertiliser. Let Agapanthus Africanus 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.
