Here, Ursula Buchan shares with the reader her own experiences and preferences: her dislike of herb gardens and timid planting, her battles with plastic netting and problems with doing the church flowers. As well as a gold-mine of practical information, Good in a Bed is an intriguing picture of the development of gardening during the 1980s and 1990s.
