In an English Country Garden Murder Should Come as No Surprise.Based On A True Story.

Dandelion Dead is based on actual events, recreating one of the most controversial crimes in English legal history, filmed on location at the scene of the crime in Hay-on-Wye.

England 1921.The serenity of a small country town is about to be shattered by a shocking revelation about one of its leading citizens.A family will be ruined.A private matter will become a case of great public interest.

Life seems good for Major Herbert Armstrong.He is a respected solicitor with a country estate, the love of his three children and devout pride in both his life and his garden.But every landscape has it challenges- and so does life.

In Herbert's otherwise pristine garden it's a bad case of dandelions.In his life, the problems are twofold.Firstly there's his wife.Katherine has become bad tempered and domineering, not in the least afraid to embarrass Herbert in public.Then there's the business.A series of unfortunate financial arrangements and the arrival in town of Oswald Martin, a young, ambitious rival, has turned Henry's good fortune upside down.

The solution to the dandelion problem is straightforward: small delicately placed servings of Arsenic will see an end to them.But what is Herbert to do about his nagging wife and the upstart Oswald
