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 Saturday everyone! So I hope we are all enjoying a bit of respite from the heat today?


Well, I thought I would mix it up a bit this weekend after braving the shops trying to get some Christmas shopping done before the madcap mayhem ensues as the big day draws dangerously closer. Indeed...bah humbug!

Actually I canโ€™t complain, I am far more fortunate than most. In our family we have an agreement not to exchange pressies instead we exchange gourmet delights, booze or an occasional gag gift. However my mum and I secretly struggle with this rule and donโ€™t always adhere to it! It was actually her recommendation that we should discuss some Christmas origins to get into the festive spirit...once again...bah humbug!!

No I jest! I thought this was charming and appropriate seeing as its only 18 days away!! #holyf***ballsbatman#yepiwentthere#howdoxmastreelightsgetmoretangledeveryfreakinyear??!!

Side note - I found a simple solution to this one...nope not by returning them to original packaging...simply remove fully decked tree and place in shed under tarp ready for next year...huzzah!

Anyways back to charming crimbo origin stories.

Now a lot of you may already be familiar with this one - mince pies were originally filled with minced meat! Not only that but were also oval shaped to represent the manger that Jesus slept in. Can you imagine your beef mince spliced with dried fruit, spices, brandy encased in pastry? (Actually doesnโ€™t sound too bad to me!) During Georgian times in the UK, the more elaborate the mince pie shape the richer and more esteemed your station in life was viewed to be, showing off chefs with mad culinary skills on their payroll!

Well I will leave you with that interesting glad tidings tidbit and donโ€™t forget to check out our pricelist pics...aggies still bursting with buds and our aloe mitriformis looking mighty fine in festive flower with a fresh new look for Christmas thanks to our manager Amy adorning them in red Santa pants I mean pots!

Ok team will love you and leave you and look forward to more festive factoids next week! I know a whole week away...try and contain yourselves ;)
