The Invisible Worm (#205Z) Duration: 47:00 STEREO

Stagford Lodge Prep School is full of tradition, and classics master Richard Oakley intends to keep it that way, despite the efforts of the current Headmaster, Quentin Marshall, to drag the school into the 21st century. Quentin's wife, Eleanor, hires Rosemary and Laura to investigate why the school's newly planted roses are dying. Richard invites the ladies to the annual Night of the Stag, a long-held school ritual involving a member of staff, dressed as a stag, and the ritual humiliation of another teacher. But the festivities are brought to an abrupt end by the death of Simon Todd, the shy geography teacher. Are the dying roses and the mystery of Simon's death connected? Our lady gardeners find the intrigue beneath the school's surface respectability much more intense than first appearances suggest.

The Gongoozlers (#206Z) Duration: 47:00 STEREO

Gavin Patterson is anxious to restore the ratings of his TV garden make-over show and has enlisted Quinnie Dorell to add a new dimension to the series. But Quinnie's knowledge of gardening is slight (her expertise is yachting), so Rosemary and Laura agree to help her with some specialist advice. When Rosemary falls from a viewing tower in an accident that was probably intended for Quinnie, and visiting journalist Rosie FitzCarron is found dead in the secluded lake, it is clear that the cut-throat world of TV personalities may have taken a more serious turn.

Memory of Water - Part 1 (#201Z) Duration: 47:12 STEREO

Lyvedon Manor is both a source of pride and a financial drain for Martin Frazer and his wife Suzanne. Martin, a barrister, hires Rosemary and Laura to restore his walled garden, which has fallen into disrepair. It's a big job, but there is a ready source of cheap labor - the inmates of the local prison. Rosemary is nervous about working with ex-cons, and her suspicions are confirmed when Martin's cousin Jim is found drowned in a nearby river. As Laura and Rosemary struggle to bring the garden back to life, events take a mysterious turn when just before the Coroner's Inquest into his death, cousin Jim is seen alive again.

The Italian Rapscallion (#207Z) Duration: 47:03 STEREO

Emma Standish is opening her restaurant on the Ligurian coast of Italy, and Rosemary and Laura are way behind in their preparation of the surrounding garden. The ladies find the pace of life here is hard to hurry, and local fixer Fabrizio Biaggi insists a visit to the glorious Giardini Tremonti will inspire them all. Their guided tour is brought to an abrupt halt, however, when one of their party, Janice Alexander, is found dead, while the others indulge in the local food and wine. Fabrizio is arrested but Emma insists Rosemary and Laura must prove him innocent. Matters are further complicated when Dr Llewellyn's daughter Celia is discovered not to be the model she claims, but really practicing the 'oldest profession'. And the restaurant preparation is further interrupted when retired Foreign Office diplomat Sir Basil Slavinski is also found dead at the bottom of his cliff-top garden, with the Mediterranean lapping at his feet.

Swords Into Ploughshares (#208Z) Duration: 47:05 STEREO

Why was Gemma Jackson posing as Rosemary Boxer to gain access to Engleton Park before she was found dead, and why has the once perfect Engleton garden become so blighted that it can no longer be open to the public? Lord Engleton's connection with the local archaeology department means that Rosemary and Laura must look back in history to find the source of the garden's problems. Anglo-Saxon artifacts hold the clue but when Richard Earle, working on the same archaeological site as Gemma, is also murdered, the gardeners realize that someone is willing to pay a very high price for a piece of British history.
