Flexbox - Difference Between flex-basis and flex-grow

I'm slightly confused on the difference between flex-grow, flex-basis and the flex shorthand.

Why does Guil set .col to a flex-basis of 0 in order to create 3 columns? I'm finding flexbox really difficult to understand and would love someone to explain in detail further.

Thank you!
