Welcome to LDGA

Letchworth District Gardeners Association (LDGA) was formed in 1906 to promote horticulture to the residents of Letchworth Garden City and the surrounding areas. Today, we have around 700 members with a keen interest in gardening of all types – flowers, fruit and/or vegetables, grown either at home or on an allotment.

Later this year we have invited two well-known gardening personalities to Letchworth. Both are designers, authors, and TV presenters.
