Day three of our Scottish Drawing Expedition was one of giants. We visited Benmore Botanic Garden in Argyll, Scotland, to see the huge conifers planted there from the 19th Century.
Our main interest was an avenue of giant redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum), which are the largest outside of their native California. Planted in 1863, many of the trees are over 50m tall.
Our thanks to Peter Baxter, Curator of Benmore Botanic Garden, and Ian Edwards of Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh for their support.
