Agapanthus took a knock of frost two years ago and plants have taken time to recover so this is a possibility.

The plant needs well-drained fertile soil in full sunshine and, ideally, some shelter to increase summer temperature levels.

A light top-dressing of general fertiliser in spring or feeding with liquid plant food in early summer can help to boost growth and flowering.
