Here are 3 places to visit for ideas about your fall plantings

September and October are our busiest planting months. Start making your wish lists now and begin the fall planting season by first visiting local demonstrations gardens including the Fresno County Master Gardeners Garden of the Sun in southeast Fresno and the Clovis Botanical Garden.

Both beautiful gardens are at their best in fall and they showcase plants that are suitable for our planting zones including many heat- and drought-tolerant varieties, shade plants, ground covers and lawn grasses such as UC verde buffalo grass. Plants are labeled with varietal names and docents are usually available to answer questions.

Make a visit a little later in October to the Shinzen Friendship Garden (a gem of a garden that is not well-enough known) in Woodward Park to see fall leaf color on the many mature cultivars of Japanese maples.
