Welcome back Perthlings!

 

Yet another week has flown by and here we have another update for you!

 

It has been an amazing couple of weeks here at WPF HQ, we have been welcoming in some awesome new stock to grow to perfection over the next few weeks of wonderful Perth Spring/Summer weather. It is so good to see our stock list starting to swell it's pages once again.

 

This week we have several new additions to the list but also want to remind you of some old favourites too.

 

The amazing deep burgundy colour of Alternanthera Little Ruby makes it a firm favourite that flies out the door as fast as we can grow them!  It's mounding ground-cover growth habit is compact but spreading, making it a really flexible feature in the garden. It likes humidity, but also tolerates frost better than other Alternanthera; displaying white flowers in spring and reaching a potential maximum size of 40cm H x 90cm W.  Plant in full sun to part shade in well drained moist soils and it will look great in containers, as a border or ground cover in garden beds.

 

A new addition to our Camellia range is the Sasanqua Weroona; it's deep pink buds open into large white flowers with soft pink margins contrasting with it's glossy evergreen foliage. So versatile, perfect for hedging, feature planting and screening when planted in well drained soil in full sun to part shade. Protect from harsh sun and strong winds and you should enjoy a maximum growth around 2.5m tall x 2m wide.

Last but by no means least are our stunning Ficus Hillii standards in 400mm pots perfect statement pieces to line a driveway, stand sentry at the entry or proud as punch on the patio! It's dense, glossy evergreen foliage will look amazing in full sun or part shade and can tolerate a windy position. With regular pruning of foliage and roots it can be kept in a container happily.

Have a great week!

Best wishes

Weekly Update 29/03/19

Happy Weekend Greenthumbs 😊

Oh, the horror! The horror that is the realisation of entering the second quarter of the year! Monday can’t really be April 1st can it? Oh, my goodness…April Fool’s Day! Does anyone do that anymore or is society too litigious for such frivolity and light-hearted prankster play? I used to love spending my pocket money on those harmless little packets off fun in the Jokes section of the local toy shop…dehydrated worms were a compact little trick easily dropped into a school chum’s glass of water during lunch in the canteen, black soap (appeared white until lathered up with water), peppered sugared almonds, gag blood or the unforgettable fake nail through the rubber finger! All a great, harmless giggle or just a true testament to how innocent and gullible we were back then, yes, I am going back to the days of the quill pen of course!

So, you would be forgiven for thinking the first photo in our luscious line-up was an April fool prank when I tell you this Ficus Lyrata Bambino is a 130mm pot size! The stunning fern in our next photo is also great value as it’s a 200mm pot that’s got a lot, a lot of Nephrolepis Emerald Queen in it!

The final three photos this week all have one thing in common, the fabulously fragrant Gardenia Radicans, the eye-popping pink Azalea Rouge Parterre and the awesome Aloe Mighty Coral, flowers! They are all currently flourishing in this gorgeous weather and flowering their little heads off!

So, this week my friends, be sure to take care and pay great attention to the new faces appearing on our availability list as there are several new to us, also take care to watch out for those April Foolers amongst us, be sure to have the last laugh and a great week! 😊

Best wishes
