Plants can give you fresh air and shade, and just make your house a little more green—in color. Those who want to work their green thumb might want to attend Fall Is for Planting at the UC Davis Arboretum. Participants can purchase plants and receive expert advice on improving garden conditions. The public sale will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 16. Free parking is available in Visitor Lot 55 across from the nursery, located on Garrod Drive on the UC Davis campus. For more information, call (530) 752-4880 or visit www.arboretum.ucdavis.edu.
