Agapanthus Chewed by Puppy!

Hi,

We ‘had’ a wonderful Agapanthus that I bought last year from Gardeners World Live.  It had lovely white flowers and I collected the seed pods at the end of the flowering season last year to try propogation, anyway, I digress.  I believe it was an evergreeen variety as it retained its luscious green leaves over winter.

We had a new Puppy in January who chose to chew the plant so I now have whispy pale green/brown strands where my Agapanthus used to be!  I’m wondering, if I leave it in position in the border, will it regrow or should I lift the bulbs and pot them up to help it?

Really unsure what to do for the best so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Andy

    I think it’ll survive ok ... I’d feed it to encourage some new growth and put some sprigs of holly around it to gently prickle pup’s nose when she investigates the flower bed again. Not a Labrador by any chance? 😉

    I'd leave it alone.( the plant that is, not the puppy )

    You may care to cast your eye over this website while you are waiting for it to regrow....
