Downton Abbey with gardening tips (Guardian). Pottering amongst the seeds and cuttings in his ramshackle greenhouse in the garden of a manor house, Herbert Pinnegar 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 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 portrayal of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants.
