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

Faster than the speed of life!


Is it me or are the weekends flying by faster?!

I'm not sure if it's just me getting older and slower or are my productivity expectations just getting more and more unreasonable? In these unusual times that we're experiencing I'm seeing more and more posts on social media of people completing challenging jigsaw puzzles, cleaning out cupboards and producing beautiful arts and crafts but my favourites are the magnificent garden and landscaping projects! There are some magnificent gardens being produced out there guys and people are enjoying the therapeutic benefits of the exercise and afterglow of producing a garden to enjoy every day.

I, on the other hand, can't even get the grass cut and spent the weekend feeling like I was on safari with a blunt whipper snipper instead of a machete cutting a swathe through the undergrowth! My grass is like rope! I swear I saw Tarzan swinging through the giant blades of grass and it kept fighting back by tripping me up! Think I'll get out there with the hedge trimmer instead next time or perhaps someone could lend me a goat? Anyway for those of you creating masterpieces out there we do have some stunning suggestions for you this week...

From the WPF Bali Dream range our Arthropodium Matapouri Bay in 200mm are of bold and beautiful proportions, our Michelia Figo 200mm are wafting deliciously into our Fragrance range and for those seeking peace and privacy we have established Agonis Flex in 100L size. Don't hesitate to give us a call or drop us an email with your quotes or questions.

Have a great week out there, stay safe, stay green!
