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

Seasons Greetings???

Hey Perthlings,

Another wonderful weekend is with us already, in a blink of an eye the week has flown by! To be honest that's how I feel about this year so far! The next statement is one I haven't envisaged ever saying but here goes...we're preparing for Christmas celebrations! Yep, for the first time ever we're going to embrace the cold Winter Chrissy in July! Em has been online shopping for really bad Christmas jumpers for the family members taking part and it's become a very welcome distraction after the past couple of months as I'm sure a lot of you will understand.

So if you'll excuse me a little indulgence in some unseasonal festive spirit our first couple of pics this week are our pear trees!!! :) (no partridges in sight). These guys would look like impressive, uniform sentries lining a sweeping driveway fit for the fanciest of sleighs!

Next up we have the bearer of bells...ok, stretch that imagination even further for me if you will... not quite jingle bells but these beautiful Clivia Miniata certainly have potential for the most stunning bell-shaped flowers!

Finally, you'll be happy to hear I'm fresh out of ideas to link this luscious looking fern to any festive feature, the bold and beautiful Nephrolepis Floriane!

Ok guys, I promise to make it stop now :)

Have a great weekend all.

Seasons greetings!
