This depends which area of the country you are moving to. In California or the west coast, you would definitely start with the Sunset Western Garden Book. In the southern states I would suggest you begin with your local state extension service, many of them have excellent web sites and then your local personnel and/or Master Gardeners can recommend books or references best suited to your specific local conditions and your own particular gardening interests. Here is a reference showing extension contact information for all the states.

You are bound to discover so many new and wonderful plants. Enjoy your new garden!
