    Hi, New member here. Have joined up after trying to find a good gardening website for ages. I've got lots of gardening things I want to do but with limited knowledge, but i'll give it a go.

    So one thing I want to do is create an 'indoor jungle' so to speak. I have a few plants in the conservatory but I'm looking for some plant suggestions really.

    I'm looking for plants like swiss cheese plants, ferns etc or tropical plants that will grow quite big and well in the conservatory.

    One thing I'd like to try also, is to grow am evergreen vine, I can grow in a pot in the corner and grow up and across some wires in the canopy, is this possible? and does anyone know of any vines that would be suited to this?

    Really appreciate anyone's help :-)

    Thanks
    Darren

    Something I've always regretted getting rid of in my conservatory is Passiflora alata, strange flowers and scented.
    Trouble is the flowers face upwards.
    So best allowed to go up then trail down, they flower better on the way down.
