See Article for more information of growing Agapanthus

Most of the varieties we offer are the smaller, hardy relatives of the familiar Madeiran plant. They are suitable for a sunny border and can be left outside in winter. A covering of straw etc is beneficial in cold areas. All make excellent pot plants. All pots require winter protection. See Spring catalogue for full descriptions and prices. We also have a number of the Evergreen large flowered varieties.
