"Reminiscent of going down the allotment with your grandad...a wonderful, wonderful evening" BBC Radio Lincolnshire

"Downton Abbey with gardening tips" The Guardian

Written by Alfred Shaughnessy

Directed by Simon Downing

With Giles Shenton as Herbert Pinnegar

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
