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

Fleeting but fun!

Hello there gents and gentesses!

How’s everybody’s weekend going? Fleeting as always but fun-filled I hope?! Did anyone notice the supermoon on Tuesday? A phenomenon when the moon may be mistaken for a larger than life, heaven sent wheel of mouthwatering Brie about to invade the earth's stratosphere? No? You mean you weren’t prepared for it?? No wine and crackers at the ready? Shame on you! No of course I jest...the correct definition of a supermoon is a full moon that is at its closest to our mother earth appearing far greater in size than usual thus creating what I am calling the Full-Brie effect. If you missed it fear not I believe there may be another full-Brie at the beginning of next month so get your platters ready! We have a lovely mix to appeal to all this week consisting of Claret ash already beginning to get their rich autumnal colours, firesticks with their aesthetically pleasing and spectacularly structured succy shape of which I highly recommend as a feature plant in your garden like me! To top it all off an oldie but a goody bonza hedging beauty- Myrsine Africans...huzzah! Well not surprisingly I’m craving cheese now so I’m off to raid the fridge hehe! Ta ta for now!
