Herbaceous combines the worst characteristics of Compo and David Bellamy with a small bit of Alan Titchmarsh thrown in (you can judge which bit). Herbaceous ('Herbs' to his associates) should really be living in a gamekeeper's cottage in the woods but due to fate and some very poor career choices has ended up in a four bed terraced house bang in the middle of suburbia.
His main trait is one of muddle and confused thinking. All his knowledge of country life and nature has been put through the washeteria of life and, like Touchstone in As You Like It, has a wit as dry as a remaindered ship's biscuit after a voyage and is crammed with observations which he vents in mangled forms. This is all compounded with a penchant for cider.
Notwithstanding this, he's a friendly type and will happily smile to all concerned when leaving licensed premises without having had to buy a round.
