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 greenies!


Happy long weekend everyone canโ€™t believe another week has passed us by and what an interesting week it has been...weather wise I mean! Storms and rain one minute and hot dry winds somehow with humidity simultaneously...just missing the snow and then one could quote the famous crowded house song *crowd participation please โ€œfour seasons in one dayโ€

So from crowd participation to precipitation (hey hey..see what I did there..;)) I recently added a new word to my vocabulary which I thought I would share to make myself seem smart and interesting...Petrichor...the smell of rain. Specifically and wikipedially (yep thatโ€™s a new word) the scent created upon precipitation failing to dry earth. Not surprisingly this term was born by two very intelligent Aussie researchers in 1964 now obviously thereโ€™s a lot more science that I could drop on you but youโ€™re all very busy peeps and I monopolise your time enough as it is but if you want to "geek out" look it up! I thought in light of the downpours we have experienced this would be an appropriate topic!

Finally from topic to tropic (heyoooh! *crowd participation โ€œOops I did it again..โ€ apologies) the team at Wanneroo have gone tropo mad from phat Philoโ€™s (not sure if the cool kids still use phat but works well with Philo and my brain is tired from all the Petrichor learnings) to schweet Scheffleras so add to cart immediately you wonโ€™t be disappointed!

Well will bid you all a wonderful and safe long weekend!
