The library continues to be a source of frustration and information. "The Winter Garden" lays out an entirely different approach to the cold season, where you don't hide and tidy, but aims to have plants which are enjoyable throughout the year (although a large amount of it seems to involve adjusting your own attitude to see things as dormant rather than dead). Lovely, but produces a "what have you done, exactly?" reaction from the person whose garden it is. "Hamlyn Pruning Basics" is full of very well-drawn diagrams of exactly what to cut and how. Not that you can really go wrong with (say) an established wisteria, but good diagrams seem do fix things that you need to approach in a visual way in the mind far better than either a video (too much information) or words (too little).
I've also heard that there are Lego Christmas cards in Tesco. Not in the one on Cowley Road, there aren't! Maybe Megatescos.
