Good in a bed

£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Ursula Buchan shares with us her own experiences and gardening 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 mine of practical information, Good in a Bed is an intriguing picture of the development of gardening during the 1980s and 1990s.;Ursula Buchan is one of those rare gardening writers who is read with pleasure by people who have never picked up a trowel or pruned a rose - in fact by people who don't have gardens at all. She puts gardening into a more interesting perspective, a million miles from the familiar gardening-by-numbers approach. Good in a Bed contains wisdom accumulated over two decades, from practical advice on plants, garden design and pests - not to mention how to make a cricket wicket or rugby pitch - to thoughts on horticultural trends and fashions, like the development of dwarf varieties and the encouragement of wildlife.
