I’m disappointed you’ve not been in touch. Aside from anything else, I need someone knowledgeable to help me, as I am far from convinced the gardeners who telephoned in during the broadcast know what they’re doing.

If lunchtime is better for you, then I have made a great find near Smithfield – a restaurant called Club Gascon that specialises in foie gras. Why don’t we meet there on Friday and you can tell me all your news.

This is not looking good. What do you suppose Stephen James is up to by insisting on being appointed head of retail at Fraser Kilroy? He held a management job once, but I ended up taking over because he wasn’t up to it. And where does this leave you as chief investment officer?

Victoria and I are far from happy over the proposals for the new retail division of Fraser Kilroy. In particular, we think it devalues our roles. We are also disappointed the way the press has been handled. We need to meet.

Sorry, but we can’t now start work on your garden until New Year. We’re absolutely inundated with work. If you like, we could recommend a landscape gardener to do the basic groundwork, and we can plant out in the spring.
