I am still on XP ...with which I am happy with but they do say I need to do something soon as it is without support now.

Must investigate  FastStone

Did you get all your pix from Photobucket or did you loose them ?
Apparently after a period of time not using PB the photos dissappear off this site ??? ... that is what I read anyhow.

Good for you getting one to bloom on Valentine's day  :) ...
Mine are in bud but a long way from bloom ... wish they would hurry up as they need a prune urgently ... difficult to walk past but I would sure hate to miss out on the blooms  ??? it is a dillema

Weeds are tenacious irritants. Nothing that I know is going to stop them from growing forever that won't be dangerous to your own health or cause other problems.

I find that boiling water works for me ... also important that the weeds are not allowed to blossom and spread seeds. But it does require fairly frequent attention.
Have read Yates produce a long acting weed killer for pavers and it only needs to be used once a week ... have not tried it as I try to avoid chemicals.

Sorry about the tardy reply but I just found it :o

I like to do my camelia cuttings in late spring ....Make an angled cut on the stem or branch and dip it into rooting hormone and place Into a  clean pot with propagation mix (1 part perlite  to 1 part peat moss.

Write the name of the plant on a label and stick it in the pot.
Water gently and cover pot with a plastic bag .
Use an old coathanger over the pot to form an arch to keep the plastic bag from collapsing.
You can use an old soft drink bottle with the bottom cut out of it and simply place it over the pot.

Stand pot in a shady spot that gets good filtered light but no direct sun.
Check periodically to see if more water is needed and spray water onto the cuttings.
Propagating mix should not dry out or the cuttings will die.
Plants will have begun to form roots after about eight to 12 weeks.

Alternatively you can layer them if you have a low branch.

Sorry that I cannot help as I am from Oz

Our cement bags are 20kg and they are heavy enough to lift.

Your cement stands sound interesting ... any chance of posting a photo ?
