I was amazed when lots of buds suddenly popped up in the border by the driveway. I was delighted when they turned out to be buds of Agapanthus which I had bought many years ago and were being rather slow to multiply. All the books say that they like to have their roots restricted and are therefore good in pots. Maybe their neighbours have now grown to such an extent that their roots are restricting the roots of the Agapanthus, but , whatever the reason, this year, they have never been so good.
I do love blue flowers, but, I think I need maybe some yellow or white next to them, what do you think?
or even bright orange?
I will certainly buy some more bulbs, which will include some white ones, to finish the border down the whole length. I was hoping my yellow crocosmia would flower at the same time, but every year it is always over too soon. I have a yellow kniphophia just starting to flower, so maybe another one to keep the Agapanthus company would be good or some yellow or white dahlias which would then flower through to the frosts, decisions to be made over the winter!
