Agapanthus ‘Neverland’ Growing Guide
Plant in the spring months (April – May are best)
Ensure that you do not plant in the shade as your agapanthus won’t flower as well.
If you soil frequently waterlogs, or if you live in a colder climate, plant your agapanthus in container for best results.
Position the plant so the top of the root ball is level with the top of the hole. Fill around with more compost/soil mixture and firm in. The root ball must be thoroughly covered and firmed in well to ensure there are no air pockets around the root ball, that may cause it to dry out.
Water the plant and surrounding area, including the root ball, thoroughly. You may want to also add a layer of mulch, such as bark, to help prevent water evaporation and stop weeds growing.
Continue to water regularly while your plant establishes but ease back towards the end of September to allow the foliage to toughen up.
Agapanthus ‘Neverland’ Pruning Guide
Dead head your agapanthus at the base of the flower once these have faded. The plant will then have the opportunity to flower for longer. You can always leave the seedheads to allow interest during the winter months.
Leaves can be removed at any time if they begin to look worn.
