The gardening brothers started their "green-fingered adventure" on a council allotment followed by creating a kitchen garden at Jimmy Doherty’s farm, becoming ambassadors for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, designing a garden for the International Gardening World Cup in Japan and becoming YouTubers. Having contributed to CBBC’s Blue Peter and BBC Radio 1, the Skinny Jean Gardeners are "on a mission to get children, teens and students gardening".

Dale Connelly from Skinny Jean Gardeners said: "We can’t wait to make easily available the very best gardening kits, tools and seeds, not only that we hope to be able to provide advice on growing your own no matter what the size of your plot."


The pop-up shop has been handmade by Lee from Skinny Jean Gardeners using upcycled materials. The shop will sell exclusive Skinny Jean Gardeners kits, tools and seeds plus great products tried and tested by the Skinny Jean Gardeners.
