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 5th April 2019

Hola lovely plant peeps ๐Ÿ˜Š

What a glorious Autumnal Perth weekend, I hope you've all had time to relax and enjoy it! I would think our WA Bunnings stores and other garden centres would be having a very busy old time of it this weekend!

Talk about busy weekend, we have two long weekends looming upon us with Easter just around the corner followed by Anzac Dayโ€ฆcrikey, thatโ€™s a double whammy to be sure! Iโ€™m not sure our barbie will stand up to all that use lol! May be time for a new one (which means yet another trip to Bunnings lol, we went to two different stores yesterday and Him Indoors has just popped out to get something we forgot so thatโ€™s three times so far this weekendโ€ฆis there such thing as Bunnings addiction)?

Here at WPF we have had a monster production period and are choc-full to the gunnels of beautiful plant babies looking gorgeous and growing their little green hearts out! Our Syzygium Resilience in 200mm pots is looking fabulous with great hedging potential but if itโ€™s a statement piece or a topiary row then the Grewia Lavender Star 305mm standard is just in flower and looking pretty as a picture!

If itโ€™s beds and borders or pots, youโ€™re needing to fill then youโ€™ve come to the right place! Our Aeonium 200mm selection would create a fabulous effect in any border, bed or feature and of course we have a massive selection of succulents to create the most beautiful succulent bowl centre piece,โ€ฆtwo weeks in a row is not how we usually roll but the Aloe Mighty Coral is just too stunning not to feature again! Iโ€™ve zoomed in on these stunning flower stems for your browsing pleasure and to give you the idea of the fantastic effect a mass planting of these beauties would create, just stunning!

Ok, enough from me, have a great week and happy planting my friends ๐Ÿ˜Š

Best wishes
