The Old Herbaceous
THURSDAY 8TH JULY 7.30PM £12-14
Pottering amongst the seeds and cuttings at the back of his
ramshackle greenhouse in the garden of a gloucstershire
manor house is Herbert Pinnegar.
Now in his twilight years, he’s 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 friendship 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.
