Agatha Raisin

The Potted Gardener

Season 1, Episode 4 of 8

Mary Fortune, a seemingly perfect paragon of village life, is found murdered in her own back garden. As shockwaves reverberate through Carsely, a series of bizarre garden sabotages may hold the key to Agatha unlocking the secrets of the murder. Synopsis - With the day of the Gardens Open Day Competition beckoning on the horizon, a key date in Carsely village life, Agatha is determined to do well. But as bizarre instances of garden vandalism plague the village, as well as joyriders from Birmingham tearing up the village green in the night, someone seems to be sabotaging their rivals' chances. And although Agatha's garden is left untouched, the same cannot be said for her neighbors, including SARAH BLOXBY and MRS JOSEPHS, whose hopes have been dashed. Things are complicated further when MARY FORTUNE, James Lacey's other half, is found dead in her own back garden; her head 'planted' into one of her oversized pots. Whilst she had presented herself as a perfect paragon of Cotswolds excellence, Agatha quickly uncovers that Mary had stoked the ire of other Carsely villagers. Determined to get to the bottom of the case (against the wishes of James and Carsely police), Agatha begins an investigation of her own. As secrets about Mary's youth and extended family come to light, Agatha delves deeper to uncover the truth behind the mysterious case of the potted gardener...
