Update on Agapanthus in Terracotta Pots


Here are some pictures of some recently potted Agapanthus in the 4 different terraccotta pot sizes we have available at our Dorset site. The large Agapanthus pictured here (left) is a large evergreen variety which is fairly tender and would need winter frost protection, but as you can see it is still striking even out of season. The newer Pine Cottage hybrids are bred for their hardiness but  we can’t show you them in our new pots because there’s nothing to show yet. The hairy pots in the picture below shows the new growth on one of our new varieties A. ‘Summer Days’ which is a super hardy Pine Cottage hybrid Agapanthus with the most beautiful soft blue flowers on tall stems.

They are of plain design so plants can be removed easily. They are also frost resistant, so our deciduous hardy varieties can remain in the pots all winter.

Prices will range depending on pot size, plants selected and delivery charges but can start from as little as £40. We can get hold of bigger pots for bigger specimens on request.

All potted agapanthus will be subject to availability.

Collecting Seed

It’s easy to collect seed from Agapanthus plants.

As the seed pods dry they will start to release their seeds. Collect and store the papery black seeds in a paper bag in a cold place until you want to sow.
The best time for sowing is late autumn or spring. Agapanthus seeds germinate quickly in general seed compost with a light covering of sand or grit and water in well. In a cool greenhouse.
We are about to collect the seeds from Artic star here and will continue to show the process of dealing with the seelings through to the flowering plant.

It is important to note that the plants that grow from the seeds will not be identical to the parent. They will have genetical variations and you may get surprising results but you’ll have to wait around 3 years before you see a flower.
