They gave me some seeds and after planting them about 6-7 months ago I saw that only small leaves grew ... is it normal? I placed the seeds under a medlar tree, did I hurt? thank you all

Agapanto: Answer: cultivate the agapanto

Dear Aurora,
Agapanti are rhizomatous root plants, originating in southern Africa; there are species with persistent leaves, which continue to show their large leaves even during the winter, and others with deciduous leaves, which upon the arrival of autumn enter in complete vegetative rest, losing all the aerial part. If you have taken the seeds from a plant, you should be able to know whether it is a deciduous species or not; in any case, they are fairly resistant plants, which can withstand short periods of cold. They are usually grown in pots, because it is easier to move the pot in a sheltered place in the event of persistent frost, or to cover the pot. If you live in an area with very cold winters, it is the case that your agapanto is protected, even simply by mulching the leaves on the ground, so that the frost does not penetrate inside the bread of roots. Otherwise I think the area under a tree is suitable, with good sunshine in the cold months, and a slight shade in summer (European medlar or Japanese medlar?). In any case, it is decidedly normal that your agapanto is still small, these plants tend to develop a good root system before growing, where sufficient nutrients are set aside for flowering in the following years; generally it takes at least 4-5 years before a plant originating from seed presents the first flowers, bears patience. The agapanthus are not difficult to cure, in autumn and winter in essence they are satisfied with what nature gives them; only in spring can it be necessary to water, but only if the climate is poorly rainy; in the summer, water regularly, but only when the soil is dry. Towards the end of the winter period, spread the slow release granular fertilizer at the foot of the plant.
