Deadhead Agapanthus

On your website you said to deadhead agapanthus blooms at the end of their bloom cycle. Do I only deadhead the blooms or do I clip to the bottom of the stem? Also, I want to collect the seeds. Thanks for your help!

Phil The Gardener’s reply:
I generally cut the stem down as close as I can into the greenery so no dead stem is showing.

If you want to save the seeds you should let them mature on the plant, this way you have healthy mature seeds.

Seriously the best way to propogate your aggies is to kill 2 birds with one stone. Dividing them is healthy for the plant, it gives it room to grow and it gives you more plants to place in other beds.

Happy Gardening
