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

Happy Mom's Day!

Happy Mother's Day weekend to all Mums and Mums of Mums!

Wishing you all a beautiful day celebrating the most important lady in your life, without whom you wouldn't be here!

So to give a warming glow to the cooler days and nights drawing in, it just wouldn't be Autumn with the russet reds and alluring amber of our favourite foliage so I am delighted to share our fabulous Fraxinus Raywoodii and our port-wine coloured Pyrus Calleryana Bradford. These two make for a stunning planting option to guarantee a warm hue in our cooler months!

For those of you looking for a further colour contrast in the garden bed we have Limonium Perezii bulging forth its pot full of big green, leafy foliage and budding in readiness for it's magnificent purple/blue floral canopy, these guys make a great dried flower display long after other blooms have passed too! For the shady corner of any garden or for great under-canopy planting you just can't overlook these stunning Cyathea Cooperi (tree ferns) in 200mm pots they are an immediate statement piece for an eye-catching tropical "Balinese Dream" garden area.

So enjoy your special Mothering Sunday Perthlings, we look forward to hearing from you next week and are always happy to answers questions, queries etc by email or phone.

Take care.
