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.

Series Two (Discs 4-6)
Exotic gardens on the French Riviera and Italy’s Ligurian coast complement beautiful backdrops in London and the English countryside as Rosemary Boxer and Laura Thyme take on an array of new gardening commissions. Intent only on solving puzzles of nature, they stumble upon mysterious crimes when they unearth tensions, secrets, and the occasional dead body. The second installment of this hit mystery series begins with a double episode followed by seven regular episodes. Restoring a walled garden and surviving the cutthroat world of a TV garden makeover show are among the challenges they face.

From their former careers as a university plant biologist and a police officer, Rosemary Boxer and Laura Thyme bring unique investigative talents to their horticultural and human mysteries. Their unobtrusive presence in the garden gives them unique access to secrets other detectives might miss—and that murderers would rather not reveal.

This was a collection of mysteries for someone with time on their side and not a whole lot else to do with their time but enjoy a set of movies that require little or no thinking to get in your way of entertainment. Not up to more serious writers like Agatha Christie standards but overall quite enjoyable.

Gardening and dead bodies!!

I bought it because I saw it on our PBS several years ago, but they only had a few episodes on it. I love English mysteries and the beautiful gardens. I really like Rosemary's earrings and look for them in each episode. I like to get my R&T fix every evening before bedtime.

I saw the show on Netflix streamed thru my TV. I love just about any British production. I fell in love with the characters and the beauty of the many gardens and areas seen in the productions. And I've always enjoyed murder mysteries. Light, witty, entertaining, and the DVD's offer closed caption. I am hearing impaired and that is such a bonus!

Excellent series and now with the option of English Subtitles.

I already owned a set of Rosemary & Thyme. My wife would explain what I couldn't understand (I'm very hard of hearing), and we both enjoyed this series. When this remade version of Rosemay & Thyme came out, I saw it had a subtitle option for Deaf or hard of hearing (SDH). I immediately bought it. After watching this, we have noticed other improvements, such as higher quality picture, better sound, a menu to select episodes, scenes, etc. Plus, we think they added at least one additional program not on the original set. Magnificent! This is a great "non-violent" murder mystery series and a tour of some great English gardens.

I like mysteries and thought I would give this collection a try. I was surprised that I really loved the characters and the beautiful places around Europe they traveled and the gardens that were their focus. The mystery wasn't really the strongest point, however, the angst of these two women, who were going through some changes in their lives, and how they coped with it all, was magnificent. Rosemary, being 'let go' from her job teaching and Laura going through a divorce... then meeting by chance, and starting a business together...I wish that more episodes were made. I would love to see where Rosemary and Laura 'planted' themselves next.

I first saw R&T on PBS & fell in love with the series! Then I discovered that it was available on DVD, so I ordered it, but only Series One was available. It took awhile, but finally I saw the other two series, but I could only get them as a complete set...1-2-3. I wish there were more series' produced because this is a good show! The mix of horticulture, views of awesome gardens, and the quirkiness of the cases make for great viewing!

We, rate this series as the best ever produced. Kendal and Ferris make every moment believable. And now with subtitles even those of us with a bit of a hearing problem can catch each word and enjoy it so much more. We thank Acorn for helping us upgrade to the newest version.
