I've got a north-west facing conservatory and I'd like to grow some climbers and medium sized pot-plants to give it a tropical feel.
It gets a fair bit of afternoon sun in summer and gets pretty hot, not masses of direct sunlight though as it is partly shaded by the house. In winter it gets no sun and gets pretty close to 0 deg C.
I don't mind if there's not much happening in winter because it's too cold to use, but I am having trouble thinking of plants that wouldn't mind the summer and winter extermes in temperature and the lack of direct sun.
Any suggestions appreciated!
