Something is wrong with my agapanthus plants. The plant themselves appear to grow normally and well, but the flower when it comes does not form a conventional blue ball but has only a few blue stems that droop miserably. What am I doing wrong?

They get a genereous amount of sun and do not dry out. I put the usual compost etc in the planting hole but the surrounding soil is chalky clay. Any ideas?



Any idea which variety you're growing? There are one or two that don't look like "balls" when in flower.
