I scanned in a map of our garden as I wanted to make detailed plans for
the layout of different bits of the garden.  I loaded this scanned
picture into Draw.

Next I added a number of circles of various sizes to represent trees.
The next step will be to capture a portion of the big map and enlarge it
in order to do more detailed maps of the different parts of the garden.
However, it seems that the circles for trees are not fastened to the
map.  When I move the point of focus, the map moves as I expect, to show
the new portion, but the green circles of trees stay where they are
relative to the Draw window, so that they change position on the map.

How to I pin the trees to the map?

How are you moving the "point of focus"? If you're clicking and dragging in the drawing, you're probably just moving the scanned image relative to the page, without moving the other objects. Use the scroll bars at the right and bottom edges to move around the page. If you have a mouse with a wheel, you can also use that to scroll vertically, or hold shift to scroll horizontally.

When you come to enlarging the map, you'll probably want to group all the objects first (Edit > Select All, then Modify > Group), then resize the group so that everything stays in proportion. Once you've got the required size you can then ungroup the objects to work with them individually, or work with them while still grouped via Modify > Enter Group and Modify > Exit Group.
