The Raker Trial Gardens will be opening July 18, 2012, on more than five acres of grounds at the Raker facility in Litchfield, Mich.

C. Raker & Sons, Inc. uses the Trial Gardens to evaluate new varieties in side-by-side comparison trials, to research existing varieties, and  shares the data  with horticulture professionals and the gardening public. 

Trial data is gathered every two weeks beginning late June and is posted on the trial garden website (http://trialgardens.raker.com). Data collection generally includes height, spread, and overall performance rating and images. 

The comparison trials are objective and all varieties get the same treatment.

The gardens will be open to the public from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, July 18  until Aug. 31, 2012
