Elysium GardenClive Balsam loves gardening. He’s never happier than when he’s working in the damp, fragrant soil. When Clive's neighbor, Heather Wood, complains about the odor of manure wafting into her open windows, he bludgeons her with his garden rake. Frantic to hide her body, he puts her in the wood chipper, and incorporates her remains into the mulch.
His flower garden becomes the envy of the neighborhood.
Hoping to repeat his prior successes at the county fair garden competition, Clive must locate more "organic matter" to ensure his victory.
After Fern Lacy and Phil Dendron, Clive's nosy neighbors (and greatest competition at the fair) call the police to report Heather's disappearance, Clive knows that he's found his new source of fertilizer.
He begins to plot his next move, as well as plan his garden plot. Will he succeed and have a garden to die for?
