Care Notes

Wow! You would be amazed at the size of this Agapanthus! Last year we used 'Tornado' in our Hampton Court Flower Show display garden and it was such a hit. This Agapanthus grows to about 80cm in height and the heads can reach enormous proportions, providing it has plenty of sun, food and a good drink in hot weather. A. 'Tornado' has very pretty deep blue flowers tinged with a hint of purple and lovely big evergreen strappy leaves. Plant towards the back of the border or in pots where they look equally stunning. Like all Agapanthus, 'Tornado' loves the sun and a well drained soil.

Height at maturity: 80cm

Pot size at dispatch: 1 Litre

  • PlantingDig a sufficiently deep planting hole and ensure that the rootball of the plant has been saturated in a bucket of water before hand. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole. Tip the plant out of its pot and position in the planting hole. Water the hole submerging the rootball with water. As the water drains away back-fill with soil so that the back-fill material is also really saturated. Firm in securely to avoid large air pockets around the roots of the plant and ensure that the soil is level with the crown of the plant. Open Close

  • Watering/Feeding Open Close

    Water thoroughly a few times following planting depending on the time of year and rainfall. An application of general-purpose fertilizer at planting should be sufficient. A nutrient rich mulch may be applied in autumn or spring to maximize growth but is not necessary.

  • Aftercare Open Close

    Cut back frosted growth in autumn of herbaceous species. This is a good time to apply a mulch to the soil if available. Slightly tender species such as Penstemon and Verbena should not be cut down until mid spring. Irises should be deadheaded regularly throughout the season and the foliage shortened in autumn to avoid ‘windrock’ through winter. Division of clumping varieties such as Achillea, Salvia, Scabiosa and many grasses may be carried out every few years in autumn. Irises should be divided in mid summer, following flowering when required. Agapanthus are best divided after flowering and prefer to be slightly pot bound if grown in a container.
