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

Winter's waning!


A wondrous weekend to you all๐Ÿ˜Š

Can you guys believe that next weekend heralds the onset of SEPTEMBER?!! Yikes! Yes, I kid you not! So best start our Christmas shopping soon aye! (Now, now, please donโ€™t throw that at me lol!)!๐Ÿ˜Š Joking apart though, I was just thinking Iโ€™d best get the staff Chrissy meal booked before all the good places go!

So now Iโ€™ve made you all grumpy Iโ€™d best get on with it and leave you in peace to have a lovely, silent night (sorry couldnโ€™t help myself) ๐Ÿ˜Š

Whilst weโ€™re still in burn-off and bonfire season our first photo is Crassula Bonfire looking sizzling hot and ready to put the heat into any bed, border or bowl, hot on its heels is a firm contender to be the next pot with potential in our Fragrance Range! The Jasmine Nitidum is so easy on the eyeballs every month of the year, it doesnโ€™t seem to truly object to any season and never fails to provide those trademark little white delights, petite posies of perfume, fine flowers full of fragrance that will follow forthwith.

Having planted the seed of fabulous flowers firmly in mind who can walk past the Polygala Mini Gala 130mm a diminutive delight! Rhaphiolepis Cosmic Pink is a pot full of perfectly pink pretty petals just now and donโ€™t miss the Kennedia Nigricans 130mms boldly budding forth ready to creep into your hearts!

Ok, well Iโ€™m off to get a drop on all those Christmas Cards to go across the miles, lolโ€ฆnot saying the postal service is slow but letโ€™s just say they get a little overwhelmed, every year! <wink> ๐Ÿ˜Š

Oh, my goodnessโ€ฆhave a wicked last week of Winter all! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Best wishes
