Described as “Downton Abbey with gardening tips”, Old Herbaceous is the humorous love story of a gentle man with a passion for plants and is a charming one man play which has entranced sell-out audiences all around the country over the last two years.

‘This lovingly created production is a joy to watch. Sad at times, it unexpectedly twists into a quiet love story of sorts. A delightful tale, beautifully told…a treat to watch and not just for garden lovers.’ The Reviews Hub
