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

Top of the morning to you all!! What's the craic? ...


Yes as you have probably deciphered by my deviation from a typical greeting I decided to go Irish this week. I know tis a wee bit premature for St Paddyโ€™s day but one of our awesome managers Amy selected the magnificent Malus Leprechaun to flaunt this week fiddley-dee...POTATOES!! Said in a weak attempt at Irish leprechauny accent..incidentally can be mistaken for my creepy Gollum accent.) So you see โ€˜โ€˜twas fate and luck of the Irish etc...seemed only appropriate!

Also featuring on the flaunt-worthy list are the mighty fine aloe mighty coral in all their blush hued flowering glory to be sure to be sure! Another beauty we have for you all is the stupendous cycad...colossal in stature and architecturally impressive as a stand out feature specimen.

Well Iโ€™m off to the pub for a pint of Guinness to wet my whistle... Hereโ€™s to eyes in your heads and none in your spuds!

*disclaimer - no offense was intended towards Irish people (I am also Iโ€™ve Irish decent) and no leprechauns were harmed during the creation of this email...they simply mystically retreated back into their pots of gold at the end of their rainbows!
