Louise Riotte was one of North America's most beloved gardeners. Her warm, witty writings on companion planting and gardening lore are American folk wisdom at its finest.

This book is fantastic!
by Shirli on Mar 30, 2010

So much information in such a small book. I stumbled upon this book while looking for a gardening book 6 or 7 years ago. I am so glad I bought it. It answered so many questions I had as to why certain things didn't do so well in my garden. Come to find out, I was planting things together that didn't like each other. I am the one who usually plants and takes care of the garden in our family - my husband usually just did the tilling, etc. if I needed it. Well, a couple of years ago, he decided to "help" me plant our garden. He didn't believe me when I told him that tomatoes hate cabbage! He insisted on planting "his" tomatoes next to the cabbage. I did try to warn him, but to no avail. I, however, planted "my" tomatoes where they needed to be put. Needless to say, he believed me later on. His tomatoes got blossom end rot and were small and puny looking, where mine produced a bumper crop! Last year when we planted together, he asked me if he was putting the right things together! Lesson learned!

I love your herbs! And I have never tasted better Peppermint. I've started mixing teas for friends, and they love your herbs, too. :) My kids (almost 3 and almost 2) caught a cold at church a few weeks ago, and I've been giving them plain peppermint tea to help clear their noses when they get too stuffy. They think it's the best treat, and love it. My daughter especially loves the Sleepy Time Tea with Chamomile flowers. It's become our nightly 'thing' to have a cup of tea and read a bedtime or Bible story. Also, the Nutritional Herbology book has been of great help to me, and since I've started using Red Raspberry in most of my teas, my not-so-fun monthly female cramps have almost disappeared! Thank you so much for offering your herbs at such wonderful prices. I can't find better prices anywhere.
