Agapanthus Not Blooming

I pulled up a bunch of overgrown Agapanthus about three years ago when we moved into an older home. They have started to come back over the past year, but none have bloomed. Would you have any idea why?

They are getting too much nitrogen. This happens when there are more roots than foliage, which is common in the situation you described. Add some phosphorus to the soil to balance the nutrients. You may also want to consider root pruning the plants.

Agapanthus Not Blooming

My Agapanthus did not bloom last year. I split them last year and this year I see others blooming around the city but I have no blooms. They are located in a full sun area. Why my Agapanthus are not blooming?

Try adding some phosphorus rich fertilizer, such as bone meal, to the soil to promote flowering.

My Agapanthus Leaves Are Browning

I live in Fresno, CA. Temps are around 90 to 110. My plants are browning at the tips (agapanthus). My daylillies are brown-reddish on leaves. I was watering three times a week (Sun. , Tues. , and Friday) in the am, like two. Even some of my sago palm leaves are yellowing in the center. And they are fairly new. Not all plants but some more than others. Anyone have an answer?

It sounds like they need more water. If they are in the ground, I would recommend watering for longer periods of time on the same scheduled as you have now. If they are in containers, I would recommend watering daily, even 2X daily in those kinds of temps.

Overgrown Flower Garden

Any recommendations on how to tame an overgrown front garden that is primarily comprised of agapanthus, purple fountain grass, and fortnight lilies? I’m a new gardener but per my reading I’m considering dividing all plants this fall and creating space for 5-year growth.

I would go through and trim it all back. This way you can at least see what you have to work with. Also, remove any weeds that may be present. Division is a good idea and will help immensely.

My Agapanthus (in a Pot) Hasn’t Flowered for 2 Years

I have put it in the shed over the past two winters, but still no flowers. Should I plant it out before the winter or hope it flowers next year?

ANSWERS

You may be lacking phosphorus. If there is a lack of phosphorus in the soil, plants will have little to no blooms. You can either use a phosphorus rich fertilizer or add some bone meal to the soil. This article may help as well:
