Agapanthus 'White Heaven' has very large (20-24cm) heads of white semi-double flowers with elegant, long lasting seed pods blooming in late summer and early autumn. too. An unusual variety with extra large and many-petalled heads..

Environment

Agapanthus grow best in well-drained soil, in a sunny site that receives sun for most of the day. On heavy soils, mix in grit when planting. Spacing should be 30cm apart and with crowns 5cm (2in) below the ground.

Use a loam based compost with slow release feed granules added for long term feed. Ensure that you feed with during the growing season.

Agapanthus doesn't like to be potted into pots that are too spacious as this will encourage leaf growth rather than flower production. Ideally, they perform best where root development is restricted but the plants are well watered and fed.

Although plants flower well in pots if the roots are constricted, they should not be allowed to become completely root bound and should be split and replanted in fresh compost if the roots become too congested, otherwise flowering will suffer.

It may take two or three years for plants to establish before flowering really takes off, but after this they will grow in to long-flowering clumps. To maintain health and performance, divide the plant once every three years

Agapanthus can be reluctant to flower if subjected to drought conditions after flowering. To ensure a good display the following year, keep plants moist until autumn after flowers start to fade, which will encourage the development of new flower buds.

Landscape

Properly preparing the soil for bulb planting is essential! Good soil drainage is essential for planting bulbs. If your soil has a lot of clay content, consider adding a bit of coco peat. Consider your sunlight requirements based not he type of bulb you have chosen to go with. Some plants might be happy in a semi shade environment under a tree whereas someone might require full sunlight.

The general rule of thumb for planting spring bulbs is to plant two to three times as deep as the bulbs is tall. This means most large bulbs like tulips or daffodils will be planted about 8 inches deep while smaller bulbs will be planted 3-4 inches deep. Planting depth is measured from the bottom of the bulb.
