We are delighted to be able to share with you some unusual and rare Agapanthus cultivars from our Plant Heritage National Collection.

In order to maintain the quality of the plants in our collection we have been dividing and re-potting some cultivars, leaving us spare bare root divisions, hence giving you a chance to grow something unique at home.

Many of the plants are 5 years old so we use an electric saw to cut through the woody rhizome and roots like this ….

The divisions are strong but are not very pretty! The leaves are yellowing from the shock of being divided, and have been cut back. The cut through the roots might appear severe, but we have tried and tested this method and providing you follow a few simple guidelines you will be successful!

We do not advise planting directly into the ground as you are unable to control the temperature and moisture levels. Divisions do vary in size depending on the size of leaves and stems.

Our tips for success-

1. Pot up the division on receipt into a free draining compost into a pot that provides no more than 5-10cm compost around the division.

2. Water well and place in a light and frost free glasshouse, conservatory or porch.

3. Keep the compost drier than wetter as this will encourage the plants to make roots.

4. Move outside after the risk of frost has passed and plant out in the border when new roots have filled the pot, if you do not intend on growing it in a container.

5. If you are buying a deciduous type then the leaves will take longer to appear in spring

Watch our You tube video for more guidance.

And here is a plant we potted up a year ago-

If you have done everything right but your plant fails to establish send us a photo with the label and we will credit you – so what is there to loose!

We do not have pictures of all varieties and have not got detailed descriptions but have provided what we know!

We will be adding plants, so keep an eye on our page.
