The humorous love story of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants, Old Herbaceous is a charming one-man show which has entranced audiences around the country and has been described as 'Downton Abbey with gardening tips'.
An acute and sometimes hilarious observation of relationships between the classes in a simpler age, Old Herbaceous is sprinkled with witticisms and epithets. The afternoon blossoms into tender humour, much in the traditionally understated English style of the early 20th century.
As Old Herbaceous, Giles Shenton truly lives the part, inviting you to feel included in a private chat from a bygone, comforting age. Keeping you engrossed, amused and emotionally engaged from start to finish, Old Herbaceous will leave you with a feeling that, perhaps, all’s right with the world.
We're a UK charity established to share the best in gardening. We want to enrich everyone's life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.
