We can combine tropical fruits and vegetables. Trees and shrubs should be planted in larger pots or beds, vegetables should be grown in planters and beds. If we want to grow summer vegetables during winter, we will have to install special lighting, which will prolong the day.

There are many suitable trees to choose from. It is better to plant dwarf varieties as they will not grow high and there will be less pruning. We must consider that some kind of trees and vegetables need insects to pollinate. Those plants can be pollinated by use of a brush.

Fruit species, such as dwarf banana, papaya, kiwi, pomegranate, citrus fruits (mandarins, oranges, lemons, kumquats), fig, persimmon, guava, etc. can be grown in conservatory. Among the most commonly grown vegetables are peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes.
