Apple and pear growers in some across the UK are expecting to have their worst harvest in decades. Early blossom followed by frosts and cold wet weather mean some bramley orchards are bare. Counties such as Cambridgeshire are worst affected and growers across Northern Europe are also seeing ruined crops. Also on Farming Today, Anna Hill finds out why bees can do better in urban areas than the countryside because of the diversity of flowers available. Presented by Anna Hill. Produced by Anna Varle.
