I am interested in sources and methods regarding botany and plant ID, and being a self-taught person. Textbooks, sites etc.

Thank you all in advance!

    $\begingroup$ Your local public library should have books, including field guides to local plants. For a more general view, there are lots of on-line resources, for instance a couple of OpenStax texts on biology: openstax.org/subjects/science $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Really, start with identifying the most common plants in your area, especially weeds. try to learn family as well as genus and species - then you will see similarities within families. When I was a horticulture student I learnt ten plants each week. $\endgroup$ Jun 2 '21 at 22:57
