I think it's all about magazines...

That's is how I originally taught myself design. If you subscribe to a few and get more at the library it is affordable. The key is to not just look at the pictures, you need to read the text, too, so that you can find out why they made the choices they made. Since you are a scientist, I think learning in this way will be easy and fun for you. You can learn the whys and wherefores and see the evidence of them right in front of you. Sometimes the textbooks you can find are very dated and not well-illustrated because color pictures are too expensive for some textbook publishers.
Try to look at a variety of magazines, not just those with the style you currently like

  • Avatar Bronwyn C Do you know of any tropical gardening resources?
    Jan 06, 2009 by Bronwyn C | Posted in Garden & Landscape

    I am looking for information regarding the background and origins of the "tropical gardening" style for a garden design course that I am doing. There is a lot of information available regarding Zen Gardens, English Country Gardens, Cottage Gardens, etc but very little about the background and history of tropical gardens. Can anyone suggest any helpful resources that could assist me with finding answers? Thanks in advance!

    • I found a wealth of literature in the files of my public library on this subject. I ordered everything, and found that much of what I received was printed within the last 5-10 years and extremely useful in being both tec … many being gorgeously illustrated and with excellent resource guides. Try different headings, such as "tropical plants" or if that doesn't work, "plants-tropical", "gardening-tropical" etc.
