In January 2013 brothers Lee and Dale Connelly founded Skinny Jean Gardeners and the pair have quickly gone on to be an influential voice in horticulture. Together they began a mission to make gardening cool for a new generation and to 'inject fun and creativity into gardening and get children, teens and students doing it’.
As of 2017, Lee of Skinny Jean Gardeners continues the SJG adventure touring the country with the unique Skinny Jean Gardener shows, as his brother Dale takes some time away from the brand to spend with his family.
As well as weekly YouTube videos, Skinny Jean Gardeners have contributed to CBBC’s Blue Peter and BBC Radio 1, created a kitchen garden for TV presenter Jimmy Doherty, built a garden taxi for Kew Gardens Grow Wild Project, designed a garden for the International Gardening World Cup in Japan and are ambassadors of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.
