Agapanthus in the garden with Lady Christine Skelmersdale and Bob Brown
A long involvement with Agapanthus, from observing agapanthus in the wild, knowing Lewis Palmer, originator of the hardy Headbourne Hybrid agapanthus to introducing a number of varieties through Broadleigh Bulbs & chairing the recent RHS Agapanthus Trial means that Lady Skelmersdale is particularly well placed to talk about agapanthus in the garden.
As co-owner of Cotswold Garden Flowers, responsible for introducing many hardy & half hardy plants to British gardeners, Bob Brown is a keen observer of trends & developments among many groups of plants, including agapanthus.
