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

More incoherent babbling!


You know when you have this realisation either prompted by a friend, family member or unaided that you have been singing the incorrect words to your fave songs for years...?? I have many classics such as Punk-ass Sally, I want to eat cheese and most recently Tell my Mum I said hi (now to be fair, some I am aware theyโ€™re not right but wasnโ€™t sure and preferred my not for radio, shower only or uninhibited, unencumbered couple of vinos version)! However that last one...I would have bet money on that one!

Anywhoo I digress, incoherent babbling of a mad britstraylian aside what I am getting at is that penny drop, glass breaking realization feeling that you experience that is usually followed by a slow rolling oooohhhhhh and occasionally head slapping action ensues (incidentally one of my fave and most used emoji) thatโ€™s what you will experience yourselves if you miss out on grabbing some of these beauties that we have created just for you!! BEHOLD...a delightful and varied bunch for you all this week - aggies in flower and butterkins boldly brandishing buttercup buds!! (Had fun with that one!) Chunky, majestic topiaries for those who love a more formal and cottagy statement piece and I just canโ€™t resist these cannas...the contrast of the dark leafy tropical foliage with the vibrant, exotic sprays of flowers...stunning!! Alrighty team I will sign off now and bid you all a good weekend! Stay hydrated!
