Saturday, September 26          Garden Walk: The Late Season Garden

Join Warren Leach, garden designer and landscape horticulturist for a tour of the gardens at Tranquil Lake Nursery with a focus on plants that excel in the Late Season and into the winter. There are numerous trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, grasses and even annuals that come into their own in the fall, providing gorgeous bloom, color, structure and seed heads that ignite the autumn borders. These mature borders can provide some of the most breathtaking moments in the gardening season. Warren Leach, landscape horticulturist and co-owner of Tranquil Lake Nursery will take you on a walking tour of the gardens to explore a diverse selection of uncommon and lesser known late season beauties that will spice up your borders adding late-season blooms, fall foliage effect, colorful twigs and attractive fruit to brighten the fall and winter landscape. He will also offer design suggestions for combining these plants into your borders and protecting them for the winter ahead.

 

 

At Tranquil Lake Nursery, you will also see more than 8 acres of fields of Siberian Iris and Japanese Iris and daylilies blooming in the fields. The nursery is the largest grower of these beautiful perennials in the northeast, with over 2,000 cultivars of daylilies in our fields. The display gardens showcase the iris and daylilies as well as a diverse selection of perennials, herbs, vines, shrubs, small trees, grasses and tender perennials. All walks are free and will be held on Saturdays at 11 a.m.
