    • 1). Transplant agapanthus plants in spring, before new growth starts. If you live in U.S. Department of Agriculture Hardiness Zones 9 to 11, transplant in fall as well. Prune off any old blooms or flower stalks and any dead foliage to make the move easier.

    • 2). Choose and prepare a new site in full to partial sun. Use a site with at least 4 feet of space, quick year-round drainage and good air circulation. Dig into a 2-foot-square area of the new site and turn up the top 10 inches of soil. Mix 7 inches of organic compost, leaf mold, humus or well-rotted manure into the natural soil to give the Lily of the Nile loose, fertile soil.

    • 3). Dig the agapanthus root ball up and transfer it with all roots intact. Plant the root ball in a hole deep and wide enough to contain it in the newly amended soil.

    • 4). Water the agapanthus with 1/2 gallon of water to settle the soil around the root ball. Spread 2 inches of mulch over the soil in a 2-foot circle to maintain moisture and warmth.
