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

Ahoy there Perthlings…think we’re gonna need a bigger boat! :)

In the immortal words of Shakespeare…”Now is the Winter of our succ…ulent!”

The groan, that just rippled through our most tolerant mailing list audience (that’s you) like a Mexican Wave at a footie game, registered around a 10 on the Richter Scale for which the more sensitive of you out there (with a more discerning sense of humour) would be well within your rights to demand an apology! I feel an equally enormous wave of appreciation and understanding will follow like the tide ebbing gently onto the sand when you peruse this week’s succulent selection of photos, a mouth-watering bunch of beauties basking in the break from parching sunshine and flourishing forth in full colours! Aeonium Kiwi, Echeveria Morning Beauty, Crassula Muscosa

In addition, let me also colour your Winter palate with the delicate, diminutive blooms delightfully dressing a darling, dwarf Diosma…Coleonema Compactum (botanical name derived from the Mafia ganglands of ancient Greece…or is my imagination working overtime)?

Maybe, it’s time to quit while I’m ahead and bid you a great week

Stay safe, warm and dry guys!

Best wishes

Jo :)
