Well, I have what I call a Garden Room. It is an extension with lots of windows and roof lights. I can use it every day of the year. Conservatories are either costly to heat or unusable either because it is too hot or too cold. Take care there are lots of sharks pretending to be nice people out there.

Visit some of your friends and see what they have. Might French windows serve your purpose?

You cannot cut anything back beyond the boundary between you and your neighbour. You can cut back to the boundary and not an inch more! So if the trees are entirely on your neighbour's land I would be very careful.

OK point taken. I think Dove has demonstrated a more usual variety.

Sorry, I really meant woody nightshade, if it is a nightshade. The solanum family is vast. And some of them are food plants!

First time growing veg

New potatoes, French beans, herbs and flowers. Grow things you love. Don't bother with vegetables which are better grown by the professionals and are cheap to buy.
