[Welcome to the Skinny Jean Gardener Blog. I don’t usually blog and for very good reason. But if you would like a blogger that misspells, doesn’t use punuation and writes in quite a strong Essex accent then I am you man. That is a rather niche blogging style! And heres the only place you’ll find it! Enjoy!..]


Hey there blog fans! So lets look at it! Garden 7 the programme, came from The Skinny Jean Gardener Show that was a Live Facebook programme that came out monthly at the start of this year! I loved that programme but it turned out to be to expensive for me on my own, although actually quite cheap for a brand to get on board. So over the autumn/ winter im excited to look for someone to partner up with to get that back on our screens as I really love that format and thank every one that supported it so far. Stay tuned for that in 2019!


So after the first 4 months of that I decided that we should do a weekly show. For those of you that may not know, and why should you as its not been launched properly yet, but 'Garden 7’ is a new company myself and former SJGer Dale are setting up. In short its here for brands and creators to join forces, but we’ll talk about that another day. But the Garden 7 weekly programme showed what the Gardeners world programme couldn’t show plus showing off other creators. 


A weekly show to put together on your own, along with a number one gardening podcast (say it enough times and it will become true), turns out to be quite alot to do, and unfortunately didnt continue after Chelsea. 


BUT I want to bring it back! And not on my own! If you’ve got this far through this blog then respect! And also you’ve past the first test, youre interested in Garden 7 the programme. So what am I looking for? Id like a group of presenters, you tubers who are able to produce a 2 minute video each week, whether that be in your own Garden, a garden make, a garden visit. Once we’ve got a team together then each week I will bring it together into a programme form to be streamed on a new channel. 


Now don’t get to excited. At the moment this isn’t a paid job (yet), but it is something new and exciting where garden creators come together and work together rather than against each other. THIS IS NOT the Skinny Jean Gardener Show.. This is OUR show. 


We are NOT here to replace Gardeners World. Gardeners World can get a bad wrap, and we’re not here to say ahh thats rubbish lets do our own thing. What I do know is that they cant show everything and WE can provide a different view to the gardening world and put a spin on it. We have less restrictions and can show what we want!


So… fancy it? Fancy joining forces? I want the all new programme to go out at the end of September and continue weekly, showing that just because its getting colder doesn’t mean we have to stop gardening. Drop me a tweet or and lets do this!
