Dividing Agapanthus

Do you wish you could have more flowers in your garden but you don't want to spend the money? Dividing your Agapanthus may just be the answer.

Agapanthus are a great plant. They are tough as nails and will grow anywhere in any soil. If you want more of these in your garden all you have to do is wait for them to stop flowering and simply split them up.

Using a fork, lift the whole clump out of the ground, cut any old flower steams off as close as possible to the base, and clean out any old or dead leaves. Using a big kitchen knife cut each shoot off and then shorten the foliage by about two thirds and you're ready to replant.

Now the old plant has a lot more space which means a lot more flowering, you'll have a whole new row of flowers and it will have cost you nothing!
