Meet Frank. He’s just started The Amateur Gardeners Appreciation Society and you’re cordially invited...

Frank’s always been a keen gardener but lately he hasn’t been getting out quite as much especially not since his wife passed away. After much deliberation he decided it’s time to move into Pine Grove Villas - his local retirement home. It’s a very nice place, with very nice people, but there’s still that one thing that Frank really misses…

So he’s started his very own gardening group to share some hints and tips from a life-time spent in the garden. And perhaps telling one or two more personal tales along the way…

This unique show is an intimate portrait of all the minor triumphs and major tribulations of amateur gardening, and of a life-time spent in love.
