Lee Connelly ( aged 31), The Skinny Jean Gardener is best known for his work as the CBBC Blue Peter Gardener, specialising in children's gardening.
Lee first started gardening in 2014 at the age of 26 with his brother on a local allotment, learning his new hobby though social media. He moved on to TVs Jimmy Dohertys farm to build a new kitchen garden for his restaurant, getting involved with Jamie Olivers food revolution and soon after building the first allotment on Blue Peter, and presenting gardening on tv and online ever since.
Through his other work on TV, online, on stage and with his family gardening podcasts, he inspires families and children to get outside in the garden, create memories and enjoy the space they have. Lee believes that no matter how big you or your garden is, we can all be gardeners.
