The weather will cool off and when it does gardeners know it is time to plant so dense root systems can develop over the cold winter. The Chattahoochee Nature Center is ready to help with their fall native plant sale 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Sept. 15-16 at the center greenhouse, 9135 Willeo Road in Roswell.
