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 once again everybody! I trust we all had a marvellous week?!


We have been fortunate enough to welcome some adorable little ducklings to our family with baby chicks not far behind hopefully! I am currently enjoying catching up with Mother dearest and her precious posse of puppies and I tell you I don’t know how she managed to get anything done surrounded by these dangerous levels of distracting cuteness! As we speak I am attempting to type whilst I have a delightfully squirmy Rosie try to climb my torso and darling ted bear (side note- I also call Ted Astaire due to his mad dancing moves!) with his severe aversion to technology swatting my phone with his furry paw! Tough working conditions indeed!

Our family here at Wanneroo have been working very hard to present you all once again with a fabulous range of perfect piccies to ooohhh and ahhh at, ranging from alluring Alternantheras to terrifically, tantalizing, tangerine adorned Tiger grass in 250mm!

So without further ado I present them to you and will bid you all adieu!

Tata for now!
