Was it "planted" in the ground before you potted it into it's current
container? If so, it might be suffering from transplant shock. There are
several remedies on the market that you can buy to ease to plant back to
You could use some John and Bob's Soil Optimizer, Worm Gold Plus and/or
Dr. Earth's general organic fertilizer. J&B's contains humic acid that
will assist your plant and give it what it needs. Don't use a chemical
Was it kept in the same, general environment this year, as last? (indoors,
outdoors sun/shade, etc)
There are many varieties of Agapanthus, but they all make good container
plants. I've found them to do best as they become a bit rootbound in their
container. Perhaps it just needed a year to grow to the size of the pot
that it's in (true of most Agapanthus). If the plant is otherwise healthy,
it should be ok, and bloom next season (probably very proficiently). Bloom
time is about over, so holding out any hopes for a bloom this year would be

Just a note along those lines. Live in S. central TX. Tomato plants in
above ground garden did wonderfully until July. Almost gave up on them in
August, lately all slowed to a crawl including flowering. Last two weeks
have been mostly cloudy with some intermittent rain. Tomatoes are flowering
all over the place. One tomato plant, that I thought was dying (lack of
leaves), has produced alot of leaves and is flowering as well. I don't
attribute it to watering, as I irrigate adequately but not excessively. I
don't attribute it entirely to heat, as the heating of the air has come to
near par of what was previously. The only thing left is actual sun
exposure, and cloudiness, and slightly cooler temps. Tomatoes are supposed
to "love" sun exposure. Definitely not the only one in the area who has
seen this with tomatoes and other "sun loving" plants. You figure it out, I
drew my own conclusions.
