I saved some seeds from our agapanthus in Autumn. I have kept them in a paper bag inside a tin so they are dry and not too hot/cold as they are in the garage. When should I sow them? Do they need heat or is an unheated greenhouse OK? Any help/comments would be appreciated.
We collected seeds last year and have kept them in an envelope until April this year, I planted them in a seed tray next to some eucalyptus seeds the euc's have come up and been planted on to 3inch pots and the agapanthus are just starting to show green tips. They are kept in our open loft space, as it's south facing there is plenty of light and heat. Will now have to see how I get on as its the first time of growing these.
I sowed loads of agapanthus seed last spring form seed collected th eprevious year and stored in paper bags. Loads germinated and I potted them on when big enough to handle and gave away about 30 babies. Unfortunately, this winter I have lost all 3 parent plants and all the babies. It wasn't as cold as the previous winters but we did have a nasty cold spell after a warm patch in Feb when things got excited before they should.

No you sow seed- not plant them -you plant plants.
