Growing Fruit and Veg in Shetland

Food growing on an island at 60 degrees north is a little bit different to growing further south. We have a maritime climate (wet and windy), a short season, lower light levels and often poor soil.

This doesn’t stop us growing a wide range of fruit and vegetables. It takes a bit of planning and preparation, working with what we have to make it better, but it can be done and we can help you do it.
