Rakers Trial Gardens in Litchfield

The trial gardens at Rakers Acres in Litchfield Michigan are in full bloom and open to the public through the month of August. Seed companies from across the country grow displays of their products in professional garden settings. Several acres of annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables, and ground cover are flanked by rows of potted floral displays and scores of hanging baskets. Most are in the sun, but some are grown in shade to give gardeners inspiration of what their well-cared for product could look like.
Recent mild daytime temperatures have been ideal conditions for walking the gardens and viewing the seemingly endless varieties and colors of flowers. Raker employees and seed representatives are also onsite to provide information on local retail outlets and tips on how to make your garden beautiful. Liquid refreshments to keep visitors hydrated is a pleasant amenity provided onsite.
Many of the visiting gardeners, growers, and representatives have found the Munro House B&B in Jonesville to be a convenient and comfortable headquarters when visiting Rakers Trial Gardens. Located just 5 minutes away in downtown Jonesville, the Munro House has been the people’s choice for lodging in the area for years. 

Rakers Trial Gardens are open to the public Monday through Friday from 8-5 through the month of August. Rakers Acres is located at 10371 Rainey Road between Jonesville and Litchfield.
