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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bulletins! March 31, 2010
By Sheila
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Since I love strawberries, I just had to have this one, and it has a lot of really great information in it. Of course, it's not an encyclopedia, but it's worth it for sure.

I purchased one of these bulletins a while back, and I liked it so much, that I now purchase enough of them, to get free shipping, and so far, I have not been dissapointed in ANY of them.

I add personal notes to my bulletins, and it makes for a Handy tool that you can even take to your garden. These are my "Quick Grabs" for instant information. I love em!

I took a chance ordering several of these little booklets and I'm glad I did. The information I got from them was well worth the price. They are simple, aren't fancy at all, but contain helpful gardening information. I recommend them.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very informative, and easy to read. It has lots of great ideas on how to maximize your strawberry yield. I used some of the book's recommendations in my garden this year. I got more berries this year, than I did last year.
