Sue Kent is a Gardener and a new presenter on Gardeners' World 2021 as well as a Professional Masseur offering sports Massage and relaxation Massage.

Sue was born in the early1960s and her Mother, during her pregnancy took the drug Thalidomide for morning sickness but unknown at the time, the drugs side effects caused Sue to be born with an upper limb disability.

Her upper limb difference means she has 8 inch long arms, no thumbs and 7 fingers which has meant she has always been keen to overcome any challenges and work out new ways of doing things.

Sue comes from a family of gardeners, her Great Grandfather Walter Godfrey from Colchester Essex supplied Asparagus to the the Prince of Wales.

Her father was also a keen gardener and Sue spent her childhood helping out in the garden

Sue career took her to work in marketing and sales but when she needed to look for a more flexible career she turned to Sports Massage. 

She obtained a Sports Massage Qualification from the University of Wales Institute in Cardiff in 2010.

In 2012 Sue was part of the Paralympics where she was the official Sport Masseur for the British Team carrying out massages on the Athletes.

Sue first appeared on Gardeners' World in 2020 in Episodes 14 & 22 as a guest to show us round her stunning costal garden in Wales and how she had adapted her garden and her gardening to meet her needs.

Her down to earth approach and enthusiasm for her 3/4 of an acre garden of more than 30 years, left viewers wanting more.

Whether it is finding the right tool, how to garden with her feet, Sue's positive attitude to getting a job done brings a new sparkle to gardening and she shows just how enjoyable your connection to the soil can be.

Sue appeared on a podcast for Gardeners' World in January 2021 and on the first programme of Gardeners World 2021, Sue made her debut as a presenter.
