Old Herbaceous

Pmac Productions

Pottering amongst the seeds and cuttings at the back of his ramshackle greenhouse in the garden of a country manor house is Herbert Pinnegar. Now in his twilight years he is full of memories and tales of a bygone era.  In between potting up and potting on, he recounts his journey from orphan boy to legendary head gardener ‘Old Herbaceous’ and tells of his relationship with the lady of the house, Mrs. Charteris.

Sown with seeds of gardening wisdom, this charming one-man show is a love story – a humorous and touching portrayal of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants.
