    If you want a flowering plant what about a passion flower? Or if you want to grow something to eat how about a dwarf fruit tree - something unusual that will not grow outdoors.

    I read somewhere that the vine root has to be planted outside. Is that right? Am just getting my planthouse/greenhouse finalised - foundations in and brick work ready to go - so also looking for something nice to sit around. Its only 10 x 8 but already I have moved in with sunlounger, gin and tonic etc.

    That's right Jenny, you plant the root of the vine outside and lead it in through an opening. Enjoy your greenhouse.
