Pro Landscaper’s Lockdown Little Interview
Saul Abbott, Saul Abbott Garden Design
So you’re self-isolating…who’s your favourite person to be locked up with? Myself! I like to listen to music whilst I work and my partner can’t stand my music choices so it’s better for me to be alone!
Name one thing that’s changed about your daily routine that you’re going to take forward after lockdown’s over? I’ve started running again (after an 11 year hiatus) at 6 o’clock every evening so if I can get back home from work by that time every day I’ll keep it up.
How many cups of tea/coffee are you now drinking per day? 127!
Best new Netflix/boxset series or book you’ve discovered? Joe Pera talks with you.
What do you miss most about life before lockdown? Face-to-face meetings. You can’t ‘feel’ a space on a skype chat or by clients’ terrible photos!
DIY vs gardening – which wins? Gardening, although this year I’ve become so impatient at how slow my seeds are taking to germinate!
What time is wine o’clock? Strictly at 8….. pm!
When working from home is your background choice radio/tv/silence? Radio (Spotify)
In hindsight, what would you have prepared in advance (ie food/diy products etc)? My favourite compost and Arborio rice (impossible to get anywhere right now).
Is the government doing a good job of keeping you informed? Finally yes, although it was a very poor start.
What’s your predicted date for return to normality? End of June/beginning of July.
Best new follow on social media? denzilcheesenpickle on Instagram. Funny guinea pig posts. I never knew I liked guinea pigs but they’re actually pretty cute.
