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

Happy weekend campers!

So topic this week is random sayings and from whence did they come from?? I was chatting with a dear friend and good customer and used the phrase cut the mustard and I pondered...several things...1) love that saying, note to self - use more often and 2) where the hell did this outlandish but somehow strangely appropriate arrangement of words to sum up its definition come to be in existence??

I then shared the latter thought with my friend and we agreed there must be a website out there consisting of hilarious and quirky sayings and their origin story!

However that was it for me...Pandoraโ€™s box was open and my brain continued to wander and ponder further about funny English idioms that I had been exposed to through my childhood...A storm in a teacup, pop your clogs, what a load of codswollop, Bob's your uncle and a fave of mine...a few sandwiches short of a picnic!!

So although this has absolutely sweet fudge all to do with this weeks plant pics of the week I imagine you are all thinking if you are still with me, I decided I would try to include as many quirky colloquialisms to describe our standouts because...well why the hell not?!

So I will cut to the chase...these aggies are the absolute bees knees bursting with bud, beauty and hardiness they really are the full monty!

Now a picture is worth a thousand words...as you can see from this expertly shot pic (courtesy of Dave...Ta very much Davo) of our Balinese dream featured ficus lyratas...the darling of the indoor plant family! And the cherry on top, the icing on the cake, proving that beauty is not just in the eye of the beholder...itโ€™s also right there in the name! Our Aloe white beautyโ€™s are decorated by our hunky Perth flourishers tag and I think you would agree are looking the ducks nuts right now!

Well hey presto I think Iโ€™m out of idiom ammo so on that note I will call it a day.(Last one!)

Enjoy your weekends everyone.

Keep calm and carry on and keep on truckin!

(I lied).
