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

Minimum effort, maximum impact!


Hi fellow Greenies! :)

Once more another week has flown by! Almost two weeks into October, my first batch of Christmas pressies purchased, several defeatist glares at the enormity of the gardening project ahead to be ready for Christmas (yes, that one week of the year where everything has to look spiffingly immaculate for all the family and friends you adore and want to welcome unreservedly into your home). We spend all our time picking enormous grass seeds out of the dogs, pulling weeds and glaring at the enormous swimming pool for which mankind has yet to invent a cover of such random form and gargantuan size, however, two beautiful wild ducks have adopted it as their home over Winter and now we havenโ€™t the heart or energy to commence the usual massive pre-Summer clean up that befalls the lucky resident of a wonderful property from the 1970โ€™s! Wouldnโ€™t change a thing (except maybe the lack of a Powerball win with which to hire many hands to make light of the work). So, youโ€™ll understand if you donโ€™t get an invite for a Christmas Pimms and lemonade!

If looking for a stunning impact from the comfort of your cool, shady patio in preparation for the silly season Blechnum Brasilience is definitely blazing a trail with her stunning flare of colour, which has been known to become more and more vivid with every glass of Pimms, so Iโ€™m told <blush>. This year my heart is set on the easy care, great colour range and waterwise...succulents! Crassula Gollum, Sedum Blue Feather, Dwarf Pink Pigfaceโ€ฆneed I go on? The possibilities are endless, they make fantastic gifts and stunning features, we let the artistic talents of our gorgeous girls in the nursery run riot on two large succi bowls to help display our ranges of colourful succis so if you need inspiration drop by and say hi! Always delighted to see you and happy to help.

Enjoy!

Best wishes
