Tranquil Lake Nursery in Rehoboth, Massachusetts will offer four garden walks to celebrate the cxhanges in the garden from mid summer through to early fall. These walks are designed to highlight the many plants and plant combinations that bring beauty and color to the late garden


Our dog days walks are referencing the hot days of August, when the dog star dominates the night sky. However, with all the heat and drought lately, our canine friends are also feeling the worst for wear. Let's hope that the heat will end tomorrow and the rains will appear. Then Daphne and the rest of us will be bright and alert again.




Saturday, August 15 & 22          Garden Walk: What's in Bloom: Dog Days in the Garden


Though by August, the heat and humidity may take its toll on the gardener, a garden designed with a plant palette to withstand the dog-days and drought of summer also offers a stunning exuberance of flowers, maturing seed heads and colorful foliage. Warren Leach will lead you through the gardens at Tranquil Lake Nursery to showcase planting design in gardens that continue to dazzle from late summer, fall and onward. Celebrate the flowers that stand up to the heat of the August garden.


Both workshops are now full 11 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.


An Additional Workshop is Scheduled for August 22 at 11 a.m.
