What Would You Recommend? - Garden Books

This is a question I get asked all the time working in the bookstore: "What would you recommend for somebody who loved "_________"? (fill in the blank)" Usually I can come up with something, but that something can be a bit of a wild guess if it's not a book or genre I normally read. This is where you helpful people come in. If you have a suggestion, I'd love to hear it.

In honor of the season and the fact that I got out in the garden for the first time this year, I'm asking for your recommendations of books on the subject of gardening. Vegetable gardening, flowers, container gardening, whatever. What's your "bible" on the subject?

Considering that I mostly do vegtetable gardening, my favorite for the last few years has been the 2005 edition of Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew. My last review of the book is here. I'm also now looking closely at some other gardening books too.

So, what is your suggestion for a good reference book on the subject?
