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

LOVE IS IN THE AIR....

Happy Valentine's weekend to all of you!

Our pretty in pink photos were picked especially for the job this week with the heart-poundingly pink shades of Syngonium Red Heart, passionate pink petals and fantastic fragrance from Rosemary Majorca Pink but the ultimate pot of passions is of course...Alternanthera Little Ruby with it's moody, lustfully deep purple/pink petioles you are surely powerless to resist it's beckoning to the darker side...of the garden that is!

We are all thrust headlong into yet another frenzy of retail panic by this day of the year, what to buy to demonstrate your feelings adequately to that extra special someone in your life. My beloved bought me two new saucepans, which we needed for sure so both a thoughtful and useful gift! What better vessels with which to express my gratitude and love by cooking a sumptuous repast for his Valentine's Day dinner served with a special twist to further demonstrate my delight at said gift by keeping it nice and hot for him in our dog!

Remind me to tell you about the year he bought me a new ironing board for Christmas sometime!!!

Okay guys, enjoy your delicious choccies, stunning roses and the rest of the weekend!

Yours cynically
