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

Warming thoughts!


Welcome to the weekend lovelies! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Wonderful weather for cracking out the favourite jeans, baggy boyfriend jumpers and oh my word those heavenly Uggs! Iโ€™m also a huge fan of the smell of wood fires filtering through the cold evening air already, havenโ€™t got around to lighting mine yet but itโ€™s been close let me tell you, only delayed by the inner warmth produced by ruby velvet liquid commonly known as Shiraz! ๐Ÿ˜Š So, it looks like we are in for some very cosy evenings next week with the temps dropping to around 9 degrees, but the days are still up there in the 20โ€™s so great weather for gardening!

Iโ€™ve been presented with a plethora of pics again for you guys this week and know youโ€™ll be looking at getting lots of lovely planting done while we have this gorgeously mild weather. Still in full bloom, profusely popping purple petals and looking amazing are our Polygala Mini Gala 200mm all set to brighten any garden bed or border. As are the luminous Limonium Perezii with their lovely leathery leaves and those paper-thin purple-blue petals that last so long in the garden bed or feature pot and can be dried for a perfect indoor arrangement addition! Our next pic of the week is the stunning bay of Autumn colour that is our sea of Nandina, the colder weather makes them flush with colour and the warm hue that emanates from the Blush, Nana, Moonbay and Obsession is truly glorious!

The final word this week goes to plants who like to be potted! My potted patio Cordyline is thriving in the shaded area, un sun-scorched, it looks practically perfect and vivaciously vibrant right now and so are the Rubra in the nursery! Euphorbia Firesticks are proving a popular succulent for making a great feature statement in an ornamental pot, not just on a shady patio but oceanside balconies lend themselves to this stunning statement piece, the green or orange coral-like appearance is unique and the attached photo of our 305mm is no exception! Hope this has helped to inspire your gardening creativity and planning but if you have any queries give us a call to see what else we may have to interest you.

Have an awesome week!

Best Wishes
