Farewell from Grow Harvest Cook

Four years ago 4 women, with a combined “lifetime” of experience in lifestyle publishing decided to publish a blog following their combined passions of food, photography, gardening and design.  It was naturally named Grow Harvest Cook.

Over this time we have covered so many delicious garden grown ingredients, culminating in the production of the Grow Harvest Book of the same name, which has over 280 recipes and garden tips.  Grow Harvest Cook has now decided that this is a good time to hang up their tools, fold their apron strings and venture out on new projects solo.

The book of which we are all so proud will continue to be available at bookstores and online, and for a limited time.

review | Twigz


Bright and cheerful, Twigz mini watering cans come in three different colours (blue, orange and green). They bare zinc plated steel plate with powder coating on the outside, the neck has a good old-fashioned brass brass nozzle and screw on head. Twigz tools are perfect for kids to use in the garden. They’re not toys that will break, but rather, the real deal hard working garden necessities in child sizes.
These watering cans hold 1.5 Litre in volume and have two handles. One handle over the top of the body for carrying around the garden and the handle on the back of the body to tilt the water over the plants.

Visit for stockists.

review | potting mix


Growing edibles in pots is the only option for many people on units or townhouses. If you want a potting mix that is certified organic to grow your garden in, the you can’t go past the Grange Range with it’s specially designed blend for vegetables and herbs. Look for it at your garden centre or contact for stockists.
