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.


Our 365 Days of Colour evening with Nick Bailey planned for 19th March has been postponed until 18th February 2021.
Later in the year we plan to welcome another well-known gardening personality to Letchworth. At the moment, this evening remains unaffected.

Social Isolation

We are aware that during this period of enforced social isolation, some of our members, particularly if they live alone, may need someone to chat to. Well, we at LDGA are always available for a natter if anyone would like us to call. Just send an email to social@ldga.org.uk stating your name and phone number and we’ll get back to you. Also, if you know of any members who don’t use email but would appreciate a call, pass on their details too (with permission).

Visiting Allotments

We believe at the time of this post that it is OK to visit your plot to take daily exercise providing you follow all the usual social distancing and hygiene rules and you don’t use public transport to get there and back. Do not attend your plot though if you or any member of your household have symptoms of or are actually ill with the virus or you have been instructed to stay at home in self isolation for 12 weeks. In either case please email allotments@ldga.org.uk to let us know if you need short term assistance with your allotment. Again, if you know of any members who don’t use email that are in this situation, tell us about them too.
