    I planted 11 Agapanthus dry root plants in early December. They are in MPC in a cool greenhouse. It has now been 13 weeks since planting and nothing is showing in any of the three pots they are planted in . Am I too early to panic ?
    TIA

      They do? ;) :heehee:

      Think you might be, but I only have very limited experience.

        Plenty of time Harry, my established ones aren't showing any signs of growth yet.
        Do you know whether they are evergreen on not. The evergreen ones here were frosted and most leave turned to mush but they will regrow, the deciduous ones such as Headbourne hybrids disappear completely but should start growth next month.

          @HarryS
          I wouldn't panic yet. I noticed leaves coming through on one of mine at the weekend, the other one I haven't seen yet. Had a very mild winter though.

            @NigelJ ,@strongylodon , thanks for the reassurance . We have had a very mild winter here as well. The only thing I can do now is wait and see . Planting dry root plants never fills me with confidence as it seems you are planting some dead sticks !
            The description on the three varieties I have are "semi-evergreen" , I don't really know what this means :scratch:
