Additional Information

Glorious gardens and classic whodunits combine in this hit British series seen on public television. Rosemary Boxer (Felicity Kendal) is a former professor, Laura Thyme (Pam Ferris) a former policewoman. They share a passion for horticulture and a talent for sleuthing. Filmed on location in English and European countryside settings, the collection includes all 3 series— now with subtitles. 22 episodes, 18 ½ hrs, 7 DVDs, SDH.
Series One (Discs 1-3)
Laura Thyme, a former policewoman and garden-loving housewife, has just lost her husband to a much younger woman when she meets Rosemary Boxer, a plant biologist who has just lost her university teaching post. A suspicious death brings them together, and they combine their gardening skills and natural curiosity to dig deeper. Despite the success of their first “case,” Laura and Rosemary hope their blossoming friendship will lead to gardening commissions, not detective work. But mysteries have a habit of following them around in this appealing series that combines two British specialties: gardening and mystery.

Lovely!
By dhoneykids3 from Oregon U.S.A. on 03/07/2016

After reading this series was brought to us by the same people that brought Poirot to us, I decided to try it. I LOVE it and highly recommend it, already have, and they love it as much as I do! Not only for the beautiful scenery but by the wonderful acting skills by Felicity Kendal and Pam Ferris! They are a perfect match, and know how to get out there and solve the mystery! I love the style of the series, a clean, cozy mystery where you don't have to worry about being bombarded by filthy language or x rated scenes! I will never tire of watching this series over and over. My only complaint is that the series is TOO SHORT! I realize that the weather is not always suitable for filming outdoors, but can't you find another way around that? Please bring this wonderful series back, we are gladly hooked to it!
