This fabulous BBC TV series is like a great chocolate bar-fun and tasty. The mysteries are engaging and the huge variety of gardens visually delightful. You’ll come to know and love the quirky gardeners and their cut to the chase style and your only regret will be the fact that the series ended.
This is another delightful English mystery series that is just darned fun. It is about two women horticulturist who stumble upon murders while doing their gardens. The gardens shown in this series are beautiful, I only wish there had been more seasons of the show. If you enjoyed Midsommers Murders or Marple this is a must see.
