It is  important, if one is going to try to take such claims seriously 
at all, to  evaluate the entire circumstance to try to determine what, 
exactly, has  occurred in the bed.

Or to consider the possibility that nothing whatsoever has happened,  other 
than someone retelling a story that they have heard somewhere. The  thing is, 
the story is always about something that happened in the past. No  one can ever 
go examine the plants.
The story has intriguing elements of the uncanny and the miraculous,  and 
having so interesting and mysterious an event take place in one's own garden  
sure would make life, and one, seem a lot more special and interesting, for a  
while at least. The next best thing to having it actually happen is  to pretend 
that it happened.
Just one of many possibilities, of course.....I certainly don't  insist....
