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

Greetings and salutations fine folk!


Happy weekend to you all, I hope youโ€™re all enjoying yourselves.

So the time has once again arrived for me to lull you to sleep with my incessant nonsensical babblings for absolutely no reason whatsoever other than to give my poor partner some respite. Oh yes and to showcase some of our plants of course...silly moi!

So I have been pondering the delightful idioms once again because Iโ€™m inquisitive and obsessive and decided to do some further research but this time delved into colloquiums from all over the world! Yep I went deep down the rabbit hole! I like to learn new things and keep it fresh you know! So prepare yourselves...price list spiel...international funny phrases edition!

So I wonโ€™t walk around in porridge...Iโ€™ll get straight to it!

Now before you emit smoke from seven orifices yes we have been a tad repetitive when it comes to our aggies but not to inflate a cow or anything but you can see why...come on!! Just check out the buds on our blue babies!

Next up we have our newly added Asplenium island beauty and I think you would agree that they are looking like a maggot living in bacon! Much like our enormous elkies! Both featured in our popular Balinese dream range.

Now Iโ€™m not trying to hang noodles on your ears...but I wager our Gollum 250s are the heftiest and chunkiest in all the nursery land...and beyond!! An excellent feature choice and also a conscientious one as they are extremely water-wise.

Last but not least we have our tall and towery tolley olives! From the pic itโ€™s as clear as dumpling broth that they are looking full and lush, having the appeal of the olive appearance minus the fruit drop for those out there who arenโ€™t fans.

Well I have other cats to whip so I wonโ€™t keep you any further.

Will leave you to figure out what these mean if you find yourselves that committed hehe!

Take care!
