Meet the Author

Beloved author and life-long gardener Louise Riotte passed away in 1998 at the age of 89. During her life, she wrote twelve books on gardening, companion planting, and garden lore, among them the ever-popular Carrots Love Tomatoes. Her father taught her how to practice astrology, while her mother was an herbalist. Together they greatly influenced her life and her books, including Roses Love Garlic, Astrological Gardening, Sleeping with a Sunflower, Catfish Ponds & Lily Pads, and Raising Animals by the Moon. Riotte was an artist as well as a writer, and her own drawings appear in all of her books. She took great pride in her garden near her home in Ardmore, Oklahoma.

    Not Much Love

    This book and it's companion "Carrots Love Tomatos" was a big disappointment to me. I was hoping this book would have more in-depth information regarding companion planting but it's basically a book that lists in alphabetical order flowers, their characteristics, and sometimes what is a good companion in the garden (but not always). This book also talks about herbs in the same manner as flowers, has some garden plans, and other information regarding insect pests, uses for flowers, etc.

    If you want more useful information regarding companion planting I suggest "Great Garden Companions" by Sally Jean Cunningham. There's more detail and recommended layouts in a garden setting.

    I liked Carrots Love Tomatoes so much that I bought this one, as well. It wasn't as much information as I was looking for but it was still a good basic resource.

    More whimsy than factual

    This book is not one I would recommend for someone who is looking for "how-to" directions. Ms. Riotte provides some interesting ideas, but not enough to plan a flower garden.
