Leach, co-owner of Tranquil Lake Nursery, Inc.  in Rehoboth, MA.  The program is open to the public at no charge.  

A noted landscape horticulturist, Leach will discuss the types of plants that are most likely to do well in dry, hot summers, as have occurred recently in New England, due to climate change  He will also provide landscaping ideas as well as suggestions for maintaining and caring for these plants.

Over the years, he has conducted programs for more than 30 organizations, including the Horticulture Magazine and New York Botanic Garden Design Symposium, Worcester County Horticultural Society, and Arnold Arboretum.  

Tranquil Lake Nursery is noted for its bearded iris and daylilies.  Leach has exhibited at the New England Spring Flower Show and earned numerous awards.  Among his published articles is “Some Like It Hot and Dry” that appeared in the June 15, 1996 edition of American Nurseryman.
