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 words!


Welcome to the weekend wonderful Perth Peeps! ๐Ÿ˜Š

It is promising to be a beautiful long weekend with some cooler nights but some Perthect days, so get out and enjoy it to the max! Hopefully the rest of June will be nice and gentle on us too but hey, nothing is promised and we have been incredibly lucky with our weather this past year so I shouldnโ€™t be greedy! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I have to admit to being incredibly self-indulgent this week mostly down to the Flu, also one of our amazing Site Managers fell foul of the Flu too and the rest of our incredibly awesome staff carried on brilliantly regardless! My dear partner fueled my indulgence, the dear man understands how badly I succumb to the cold weather (or he gets sick of the moaning) and being the techno-gadget man/fan that he is came up with the most brilliant gift possible (online shopping addict of the century more likeโ€ฆwe know all the Couriers by their first names and could stock a second-hand packaging store)! The incredible Self-heating Vest or Waistcoat, depending on where you come from, is an absolutely genius idea, run on power packs previously designed for charging mobile phones, when itโ€™s not possible to plug into mains power. I have a couple of these USB chargeable power packs that fit neatly into the waistcoat pockets and the three heat settings keep me snug and cosy over/under whatever I choose to wear (admittedly it could make my specs steam up on a rainy day but thatโ€™s the time for thoughtful partner to buy me a pair of Elton John glasses, the ones with the little windscreen wipers)! One of these will definitely be at the top of Santaโ€™s wish-list living in the North Pole and all! Please donโ€™t get me wrong, we donโ€™t sell or endorse them, in fact โ€˜He Who Shall Be Obeyedโ€™ canโ€™t even remember where he ordered it from <slap head emoji> but mine is just the answer to my prayers and I absolutely love it! Iโ€™ll be thinking of a few poor shivering friends and relis to buy one for when I can find where he got it fromโ€ฆperfect for us outdoorsy type folk!

To continue in my very indulgent theme Iโ€™ve attached two glorious Winter warmer photos this week, the beautiful red leaves on the Pyrus Cleveland Select trees and the stunning sea of radiant Nandina with different varieties merging into each other like the glowing embers of a fire. Just to show you that every season in the garden or landscape can bring a new vision to behold.

Have a great week lovelies ๐Ÿ˜Š

Take care and stay warm.

Best wishes
