Integrated Pest Management is the way of the future, It is also here and now. This book breaks it down and makes it easy. It will never leave my library. Great Photos for ID of diseases, pests and their damage. It also discusses Plant Stress, planting depths and good bugs.

Having been lucky enough to see this garden first hand I can only say what you see is what its like no photo manipulation. I think that the back of the book is more beautiful than the front. This book is a work of art and so is the Photography of  David Macdonald.

This book and the one above are not a substitute for each other. Both are excellent.  This book covers 2,250 garden plants with 1,800 colour photographs. It includes information on their natural habitat, flower colour, blooming time, heights, widths, hardiness zones (American) and frost tolerance.

Gardening Month by Month by Alison Beck. The best part of this book is the  climate normals and extremes pages. It is missing the all important first and last frost dates.
