Pot Sizes Explained

Pine Cottage Plants is in the process of making online payment a reality for many of the Agapanthus cultivars but It is apparent that most normal folk who know little about plants (including the webmaster at Pine Cottage) will know even less about the complexities of pot sizes and it’s understandable that you will want to know exactly what you are ordering so Mr Fulcher has kindly taken this picture to show you all just to clarify.
These are examples of the kind of plants that are sent out via mail order.

Most of the buy online varieties are 2L or 2.5L of which you can see are very mature plants ready to flower the very next Summer.

They are kept in their pots and wrapped up with loving care and should arrive with you in good condition.

They may be on the dry side which aids with transport weights and also messiness, but Agapanthus are very good at conserving moisture in their amazing fleshy roots and their waxy leaves which helps to reduce the rate of water loss. so they will be perfectly fine in transit.

When you get them home you may need to give them a good soak and then either plant them in the ground or pot them into a nice suitable pot containing soil based compost including a slow release fertiliser.

Agapanthus ‘Arctic Star’ is one of our most popular white Agapathus cultivars. A very reliable hardy Agapanthus, it is also one of the earliest varieties to come into flower. Buy online today – Add to Cart (Low stock)
