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

Sprinting through Spring


Hey there Perthlings! :)

As we hurl headlong through Spring at an alarming rate I'd like to draw your kind attention to all things flowering...but first conservation!

Our pic of the week has to be our Seasonal Succulent Assorted 200mm pots, outstanding bang for buck bursting with several varieties of WATER WISE pretties plus they are in one pot instead of many so that's less plastic waste! Succulents are becoming more and more popular for their ease of care and application too but everywhere you turn on social media they're being showcased in recycled containers; laundry liquid bottles, hollow logs, plastic bowls or disused tyres to name but a few! As a really appalling segway our next photo is a flowering succulent (the delightful Echeveria Ripple Jade).

So, for further flowering fancies we have the rambling ground cover Convolvulus Cneorum with its sublime silver foliage and delicate white flowers, the perfect purple petals of the fragrant Lavender Avonview and the wonderful white Wedding Bush (Ricinocarpus). These are just to name but a few, so for any queries on these or anything you need that isn't mentioned here please give us a call!

Enjoy!

Best wishes
