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

Colour me happy! (an immortal exclamation from Pretty Woman - a great chicky flick for our viewing e


As all us hooman beans have had too many grey old days so far this year we decided to send you some warm and cheerful colour to brighten your week! Those of you who've been getting our emails for several years now will know I LOVE AUTUMN! Yes, this is where I start spouting those unforgettably haunting Moody Blues lyrics!

Sooo to continue our quest to bring you the best we have the prettiest of the royal family, our divine Pink Princess with profuse poppings of pink! Plus sacred by name sacred by nature, our divine Sacred Bamboo AKA Nandina Blush and Moonbay are busy putting the mmmm in Autumn and just starting to set the world on fire (in the safest way possible)! As all you Greenies know...the colder it gets the hotter these guys' colours flush so planting now will assure you of a spectacular array of Winter warmth in the coming months.

Don't forget you can still just give us a call, drop us an email or question through our website anytime!

Stay safe, keep those trowels to the ground and those seccies a snipping!

Have a good week guys!
