Bert Root

Down-to-earth Bert is a truly great grower of veg! He spends most of his time in his shed, down at Five-a-Dale’s allotments.

When it comes to growing fruit and veg, there’s no gardener more gifted than Bert Root. He doesn’t use any chemicals to grow his veggies, just mucky manure! His oldest friend is Pa Snip, whose patch is next door to Bert's plot.
