About 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.

From Our Editors

Sprinkled with her trademark quotations, anecdotes and detailed line drawings, Louise Riotte lists hundreds of plants and their ideal (and not so ideal) companions. Readers can easily locate the plants they intend to grow and design a garden for maximum compatibility and yield. Illustrations throughout.
