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

Wicked Weather!


Happy wet and wild weekend kids!

So is it just me or does anyone feel like they’ve taken a spin in the Docs DeLorean and found themselves back in mid winter??! Now as a former Brit you know our talent for whingeing is legendary...a proud part of our heritage and second to none and won’t be long and I’ll be complaining it’s too bloody hot but I don’t think I’m over exaggerating! We have even had the fire on for last couple of days!

However the rain is very welcomed so will whinge less! Instead I’ll brighten your day with some pretty pics of our most photogenic plants of the week. So first up..not to be perturbed by the recent weather change and boldly brandishing bud is the attractive agapanthus summer blue. Captured wonderfully here in 200s by Amy, they are about to pop with their deep blue array of bell shaped flowers! You beauty!!!

Now changing gear to the indoor plant persuasion we have a cult classic and a permanent fave on the indoor circuit...the fiddle leaf ficus. One of our most popular in our Balinese dream range and has to be the most popular artificial and real plant featured on TV!

Ok gang will leave you alone now...that is if you have managed to make it this far through through the ramblings of a mad Englishwoman without dozing of??

Take care and stay dry!!
