TRESCO ABBEY GARDENS, ISLES OF SCILLY. A CROSS SECTION SHOWS THE IMPORTANCE OF HEDGING AND SHELTER BELTS TO THE GARDEN. IN THE FOREGROUND ARE THE ALMOST SUB-TROPICAL PLANTS OF THE GARDENS PROTECTED BY GIANT HEDGES (TO THE LEFT) AND THE TALL TREES OF THE SHELTER BELT (BEHIND). BEYOND THAT IS THE COMPARATIVELY BARREN NATURAL SCILLIES HABITAT AND BEYOND THAT THE SEA AND OTHER ISLANDS. 20/06/2015.  PHOTOGRAPHER CLARE KENDALL.
