We're delighted that Ben Faulks A.K.A Mr Bloom is joining us to answer your questions. Send your questions to him by end of day on Monday 11th March and we'll post up his answers on Monday 18th March.

Ben is best known as Mr Bloom from the CBeebies award-winning series, Mr Bloom's Nursery, which he co-created and writes for.

As Mr Bloom, he plays the allotment owner who looks after the Tiddlers when they come to help him. Mr Bloom loves talking to his plants and performing catchy song-and-dance routines with them. He is also teacher and guardian to the children.

In the brand new official range of books, we can take a look around Mr Bloom's busy allotment and find out more about his Veggie friends. There's Colin the energetic runner bean, Raymond the caring butternut squash and Joan the feisty fennel, as well as an arty cabbage called Margaret and a singing aubergine named Sebastian.

Tiddlers will love learning about life at the Nursery with these cheerful and colourful books, featuring stories, stickers and activities.
