Shelter is essential

Because shelter is essential when planting new trees in Shetland, they are often hidden from view.

I have planted many over the last 20+ years, but people are often surprised to see them when they come to visit me.

This is a photo from last year of one part (about one eighth) of my garden.  I am always pleased to welcome visitors to the garden.
