Councillor Anita Harrison, portfolio holder for Streetscene, said: “The quality of gardens across Hull is fabulous and it was a tough competition this year.

“I’d like to congratulate all those who entered for their lovely work and dedication into making Hull a more desirable place to be.

“More than 150 applicants entered Hull in Bloom this year and it was wonderful to see the high-calibre of gardening skills that were on display.”
