Pershore man 'charms plums' with clarinet music


A man from Worcestershire has taken an unusual approach in helping local farmers grow their plums.

Paul Johnson plays his clarinet to try and encourage the fruit to flourish.

He is now known locally as "the plum charmer of Pershore."

He told BBC 5 live's Breakfast that playing music to the neighbours' fruit is "a lot of fun."
