Success on 'super allotments'

The National Trust promised last year that by 2012 it would create 1,000 'super allotments' at stately homes and other properties around the country to allow people to do their own planting on the land. The scheme has been so successful, with over 300 plots already set up, that the Trust is now looking at community-run farms. Correspondent Louise Hubball reports from Killerton estate in Devon, home of the largest National Trust 'super allotment'.
