How to get savvy with gardening?

Every time I buy a houseplant or look something up that’s related to any kind of gardening I get completely lost in all the terminology, latin names, etc.

I’d like to get better at gardening and growing things without having to get my degree in horticulture. Are there any sources (websites/books) for beginners who don’t understand all the "big words" ?

  1. What I did was to go to the local library, and grab a large stack of books on gardening. Ones with pictures are more inspiring. Out of a stack of 10 or so, there would be at least a couple that seemed to "speak" to me. Reading was not over my head, good visuals, and I actually learned things, or at least got ideas.

    It’s a great way to spend a winter, when there’s not much going on outside.
