Arthur Fallowfield was a comedy character created by Kenneth Williams
extract from the link above...." Another favourite was Kenneth Williams’ country character, Arthur Fallowfield, who was based on Dorset farmer Ralph Wightman who was a regular contributor to the BBC radio programme “Any Questions?” The scripts were full of innuendo and double entendre - on one occasion Horne introduced him as the man who put the sex in Sussex. Fallowfield’s reply to any question began: “Well, I think the answer lies in the soil!”
Ah yes, it's all coming back to me now Dove. I had it my head it was Bill Sowerbutts (could that have been his real name?) until Nut said it was Arthur Fallowfield. Thanks for that.
Kenneth William's character may have been based on a real person, a lot of them were.

I remember you saying when she came and saw the pics. I'll look forward to seeing you on TV
Just looked up Bill Sowerbutts on Wikipedia and it really was his name and he was on Rado 4's Gardeners Question Time.
I remember Bill Sowerbutts and Professor Alan Gemmill both on GQT a long time ago.
