Q.Agapanthus in a container

Zone Nottingham uk | Linda Brady added on February 28, 2018 | Answered

I have a very large agapanthus in a container (unable to move) I am concerned that although I have covered the large leaves the temperature at the moment is -6 and it looks as if it is being damaged
Have you any information or advice as to what is the best thing I can do so I don’t loose it
Thank you in anticipation

I will have to assume that this is in Celcius. These temperatures in Fahrenheit (what we measure temperature in) would completely kill these! At -6C they will be right above their tolerance. They will likely survive this, but covering them will give them a headstart when the warm weather returns.

Here is an article for more information on these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/agapanthus/agapanthus-plant-care.htm
