Matthew Biggs, Anne Swithinbank and Bob Flowerdew answer questions posed by members of St Ann's Allotments in Nottingham.

He also talks to prize-winning fruit grower Adrian Baggley, who identifies and propagates rare heritage fruit trees as part of the allotments' National Lottery Heritage Project.
