Your going to be busy. Camelia are lovely. I have to large one and they perform well every year. They do like TLC, plenty feeding in summer and watering so that they do well in spring,hate getting to dry in summer.

That little houseplant looks like a varigated creeping fig, Jacque. Lovely little plant and will look great in a hanging pot. Don't let it dry out as they can't stand to be dry, but don't let it be soggy either.

Your other plants look great too. :o)

Nice healthy-looking camellia there Jac! Remember that if the sun falls on the flower buds when they have frost on them, they will drop off, so don't plant it where it will receive morning sunshine! You can plant it outside if you've got acid soil, otherwise they do well in a big container with ericaceous comp - that's how I grow mine :-)
