How to Plant AGAPANTHUS Seeds
Sow Agapanthus seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil and barely cover. Kept at 65-70° F., germination is in 30-90 days. When seedlings are 4-6 weeks old, transplant into 3 inch pots. Once plants have rooted, transplant into the garden 24-36 inches apart.
Comments: Agapanthus plants: Full sun or part shade. Great in pots. Drought tolerant, rabbit and deer resistant. Agapanthus flowers: Attract hummingbirds.
