Keith Robertson – Keith Robertson Landscaping LTD
So you’re self-isolating…who’s your favourite person to be locked up with?
My wife Rachel and our dog Toby.
Name one thing that’s changed about your daily routine that you’re going to take forward after lockdown’s over?
Watching less telly.
How many cups of tea/coffee are you now drinking per day?
8 cups of tea.
Best new Netflix/boxset series or book you’ve discovered?
Book – Fire Hawk by Geoffrey Archer.
What do you miss most about life before lockdown?
My swimming to keep fit and going to pub at the weekend.
DIY vs gardening – which wins?
What time is wine o’clock?
When working from home is your background choice radio/tv/silence?
In hindsight, what would you have prepared in advance (ie food/diy products etc)
Is the government doing a good job of keeping you informed?
Yes, but I’d really like more clarity in Scotland as to whether gardeners are allowed to work or not. I feel we are going to come under pressure from customers when grass starts growing. We are closed currently and will stay closed until we are given clear advice.
What’s your predicted date for return to normality?
As soon as possible but realistically probably the end of June.
Best new follow on social media?
Monty Don on Twitter as I’ve just started using Twitter.
