In this heart-warming one-man play dubbed 'Downton Abbey with gardening tips' (Surrey Advertiser), the quietly loveable Herbert Pinnegar shares his passion for plants and memories of his life as a gardener at 'the big house'.
Renowned actor Giles Shenton is superb as the title character, inviting audiences into Herbert's life growing up in the 1900's, through both world wars, and his years of service to his employer and 'dear lady' of the manor.
An acute and often hilarious observation of relationships between the classes in a simpler age, Old Herbaceous is sprinkled with gentle witticisms and epithets and leaves you with a feeling that, perhaps, all is right with the world.
