Buy Agapanthus 'Headbourne Hybrids' seeds

Sow Agapanthus 'Headbourne Hybrid' seeds during April on the surface of 3 inch pots containing a good quality seed compost such as John Innes 'Seed and Cutting'. You may wish to mix some horticultural grit or perlite to help improve the drainage. Add a further 1/4 inch of the potting mixture on top and gently press into place. Gently water taking care not to disturb the compost.

Move the pots to a position that will receive at least 6 hours of sunlight per day and with a temperature of between 13-15 degrees Celsius.

Water regularly, but only when the surface turns dry and not so much that the compost becomes waterlogged.

When the seedlings are large enough to handle, they can be pricked out and potted on into individual 3 inch pots using a good quality potting compost such as John Innes 'No 1'.

When they out grow these they can be further potted on into 4-5 inch pots. Overwinter these under protection so that they are in a frost free environment. The following year they can be planted out into the final position outside.
