I have used this book since I started gardening in 2004. I refer to it almost daily during the summer and it is one of the books that I go to as I plan out my garden each spring. I highly recommend this book to those that are interested in companion plant gardening and detailed information on plants, trees, and flowers. It is a must have in my library!

"Staff Pick" by ,

Originally published in 1975, this comprehensive and user-friendly guide to companion planting has since become a classic... and with good reason.  In Carrots Love Tomatoes, lifelong gardener and prolific author Louise Riotte reveals how plant relationships — be they mutually beneficial, one-sided, or downright dysfunctional — can have a tremendous impact on your garden's outcome.  A valuable reference for anyone looking to maximize their harvest by organic means.  I usually pull this off the shelf in winter when I'm plotting next year's veggie garden, and then revisit it during the spring when I realize I've amassed more starts than I'd planned for (read: Portland Nursery impulse buys) and need to revise my map.

"Review" by , "Carrots Love Tomatoes, by Louise Riotte...a guide to companion planting that has become legendary in gardening circles ever since the first edition was printed in 1975"
