How to germinate Agapanthus seeds:

Seedlings detest small containers as roots/developing bulb-rhizome need to expand.  Use a well draining gritty medium. Sow thinly. Barely cover seed. An additional layer of grit will help anchor seed down. Mist well. Provide a clear cover to retain humidity and moisture. Should germinate in 21-35 days given gentle warmth of 25-28C.  Don’t prick out seedlings until they’re sturdy enough to handle.  Can grow in pots for first year until ready for the garden. Might take 2-3 years to reach bloom size then reliably blooms every year afterward. Don’t let medium to dry out. Very rewarding.
