Rekha Mistry, is a passionate Kitchen Gardener. She’s always thinking about growing plants, creating recipes and plans her list of jobs to tackle for the next day.

Her personal journey began on her allotment 8 years ago. She has continually learned along the way gardening techniques to grow variety of vegetables, fruits and flowers. This also started her practice of organic gardening; something totally new to her, learning about this form of gardening. In 2015 whilst running her successful business she received an opportunity to take part in BBC 2’s Big Allotment Challenge . This experience brought out her passion to pursue horticulture further.

With this she started her Facebook and Instagram pages; sharing her thoughts, the high’s and low’s, Garden and Kitchen tips. Creating own seasonal recipes using organic home grown produce. She also shares an amazing collection of garden photographs and her food photography is as equally attractive. Through these social media posts, bring in lively conversations with new and established Gardeners sharing their ideas, recipes, thoughts and useful tips.

She is now a Garden Writer with a regular column in the Kitchen Garden Magazine . Her work has also been showcased in Grow Your Own, House Beautiful and The Simple Things magazines. As well as worked on campaigns with Envii and Yeo Valley  . Collaborating and promoting products with companies like Spear and Jackson, Niwaki, Thompson & Morgan and Sow Seeds to name but a few.

Rekha may not say it, but she loves a challenge. Even takes part in Dalamain Marmalade Awards, where her Marmalades have received awards for her organic Marmalades.

Rekha thinks of nothing more than what and when to grow and which recipes to experiment with next. Because for her it starts with a small seed and ends up with a delicious dish, freshly prepared or preserved.

Follow Rekha’s journey through her blog site, facebook, instagram, pinterest and twitter and hope you enjoy her work over the four seasons of the year.

  1. It will be good to follow your comments, Rekha. I have a special interest in apples (did your mother have any in her garden?) but will be keen to read on other topics too. For some reason I am being signed in as "Arthur Jefferson" (Stan Laurel's real name) – I wonder why? / Nigel Deacon

  2. Hi Nigel,I was born and brought up in Zambia, and we didn't have apples, not readily available then. But here on my allotment plot I have planted a small tree. Will post updates on it. and recipes to go with it too. Regards
