Beautifully tended gardens delighted visitors during an open garden day in Fareham.

Six of the borough’s awardwinning gardens threw open their doors to the public to raise money for charity.

The annual event gives the public the chance to see the private gardens that have taken top honours at the Fareham in Bloom competition.

Featured gardens included ones surrounding ponds, a sub-tropical-themed garden and the nationally recognised efforts of the pupils at Northern Junior Community School in Portchester.

For a one-off entry fee of £5 visitors could visit Segensworth Road in Titchfield, Birdwood Grove in Portchester, Longmynd Drive, Shenley Close and Brecon Close all in Fareham, as well as the school.

The day raised £2,590 which will be split between Wessex Heartbeat, The Studley Trust and Fareham in Bloom.
