Sowing, Seeds, Planting Agapanthus grow best in moisture-retentive soil in a site that receives sun for most of the day. On heavy soils, mix in grit when planting. Space 30cm (12in) apart with crowns 5cm (2in) below the ground. Agapanthus are well-suited to being grown in pots, which can then be brought into a conservatory or greenhouse for the winter. For containers use a good quality peat-free compost with slow release feed granules added, for long-term feed. You can also try planting into a pot and sinking into the ground; restricting the roots will encourage flower production.
Care Tips If in a container, ensure the crown of the plant does not get too wet over the winter - it can be a good idea to turn the container on its side. For plants in the ground, mulch heavily to protect from frost.
