GRANT RIVERS, ESSEX

A Aga­pan­thus of­ten set seeds, which can be sown in spring. Once the heads turn brown, cut the old flower stem down to the base and keep it in a cool, dry place un­til the flat, black seeds drop out. Aga­pan­thus are not true bulbs but plants with fleshy roots and the shoots will di­vide and pro­duce sideshoots. They re­sent dis­tur­bance, so leave them to form a large clump.
