Tranquil Lake Nursery is offering four Garden Talks across the 2023 season. Warren Leach will offer a diverse assortment of plants that will improve the look of your own garden this spring, summer, and fall. Meet some new plants for the garden, learn about spectacular foliage and bloom, drought-tolerant and resilient plants, and great plant combinations for a long bloom season. You will meet a diverse palette of perennials, shrubs, trees, and grasses that will enhance your borders.



September 23 Garden Talk: Flowers, Foliage, and Texture for the Late Season Garden
10 a.m. Light up your fall garden by adding some of these stunningly beautiful perennials, grasses, shrubs, and trees that offer outstanding foliage qualities and dramatic appeal for the late season. Warren Leach, garden designer and co-owner of Tranquil Lake Nursery, will suggest an assortment of exceptional plants with "Flowers, Foliage, and Texture for the Late Season Garden", providing examples that will shine in conditions ranging from full sun to dense shade. Some of these foliar beauties will reach their peak in autumn, while others are outstanding performers across the garden season. Experience their unique texture, bold size and shape, and superior fall color.




The nursery is open for visitation from 9 a.m. to noon on the day of each Saturday Garden Talk. No daylilies or iris will be dug during these scheduled open hours, but they may be ordered in advance for pickup on these days. Or order daylilies on the day of the tour for pickup at a later date. Container plants are available for purchase.


At Tranquil Lake Nursery, you will also see more than 8 acres of fields of Siberian Iris, Japanese Iris and daylilies. 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 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.
