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

Winter tales...


Happy weekend Gardenites!

Here's hoping you guys have been able to embrace the past few days of gorgeous sunny weather and now once more we brace ourselves for a further wet, Wintry onslaught!

It's around this time of year that my blog-waffle usually turns into drooly drivel about delicious Winter warmer meals with a fine wine in front of a log fire. Well, this year shall be no different lol! I find it warms me no end to discuss what one is creating in the slow or pressure cooker for inner warmth after a cold, wet day and have enjoyed having a couple of convos this week with some of our lovely, like-minded customers! I remember back in the day when my poor Mum risked life and limb to balance those weights on top of the huge, old hefty aluminium pressure cooker! It would splutter and spurt boiling hot steam at great pressure as it came to heat and then seal like magic but the teetering of the weights on top would continue as a sign of the wizardry at work inside...we as a family, would hold our breath and run for cover for fear of spontaneous combustion sharing what promised to be an amazing pot of deliciousness with the kitchen walls and ceiling! Thankfully my lifelong fear of pressure cooking has been replaced by the love and respect of my One Pot, a fabulous multi-cooker of many talents that produces the most amazing range of dishes ever without needing to wear PPE and take out extra life insurance!

On that note I'll briefly get to the actual point of this week's update and photos lol! Dietes Grandiflora looking bushy, green and fabulous plus the glowing Euphorbia Firestick radiating warm orange vibes like a beautiful beacon!

Enjoy Greenies and have a great week!

Warm wishes

Jo :)
