Some great gardening books include:


Plant encyclopedias

The New RHS Dictionary of Gardening

Huxley, A., ed. (1992). The New RHS Dictionary of Gardening. Macmillan ISBN 0-333-47494-5.

Fully comprehensive work in four large volumes, each around 800 pages, describing over 50,000 plant species, also many detailed articles on gardening topics.

Flora: The Gardener's Bible

ISBN 0304364355, ISBN 0881926248

'the most comprehensive guide to more than 20,000 plants from around the world. Its 1,584 densely packed pages are illustrated with 12,000 beautiful photographs.' THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH (12/10/03)

And many other similar reviews, all well earned.

American Horticultural Society: A-Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants

ISBN 0756606160

An incredibly helpful book, and part of a great series of books for all kinds of topics of interest to gardeners.

Sunset Garden Book

Regional and national series published by Sunset:

Western Garden Book (2007) ISBN 0376039167
Northeastern Garden Book (2001) ISBN 0376035242

A staple of gardeners in the western USA, the much more detailed zone information alone makes it invaluable. The plant encyclopedia, and tips on what to plant where are quite helpful. Illustrations in the encyclopedia portion are drawn, rather than photos.
