Agapanthus

Post by Jacksparrow » Wed Jul 05, 2017 8:12 pm

During family holidays to Cornwall I often admired these plants in people's gardens. There was something about the head of vibrant blue flowers but I assumed that they required a milder climate than my part of the midlands. At one point I purchased what I thought was a blue one from a nursery by imagine my disappointment that after a 12 month wait for a flower it turned out to be white and not very big like the Cornwall ones I'd seen. I put the idea on the back burner until one day two years while in Lidl I spotted they were selling small corms( :shrug: ) in a packet for a quid which promised the much lusted after big blue blooms. I followed the planting instructions to the letter and waited and waited, watered, pampered, clearing all the competing weeds etc. My reward.............A single big flower :woohoo:

They grow all over the Isles Of Scilly. Lovely flowers. The locals pot them up and try and sell to visitors.
