Hull gardens open to the public to raise money for charity

More than 50 homes in Hull have opened their gardens to the public to raise money for charity.

Some gardens in The Avenues also provided live music and art displays for visitors.

The homes are located in a conservation area of the city, and open garden sessions have been held annually for 35 years on the first two Sunday afternoons in July.

One further open garden session will be held on 10 July.

Despite the gardens being in an area governed by strict planning rules, organisers said there was plenty of variety.

Pippa King said: "The gardens are very well established and it's quite interesting to see what different gardeners have done with the objects in their gardens."
