June Flower Arranging Workshops for 8-16yrs for Largs Flower Show

Largs & District Horticultural Society, in conjunction with Largs Flower Club, have introduced two new Junior Decorative (Flower Arranging) classes in this year’s Flower Show Schedule:
8-11 years (inclusive) - A Cup Cake
12-16 years - a Bag

A cup will be awarded for the winner of this section.

Utilising the expertise of Largs Flower Club, two workshops have been arranged for children to learn how to make these arrangements and have a go at making their own. They may then try it out for themselves if they chose to recreate their entry for the Flower Show on 25 August.

The workshops are being held on Monday 11 June 2018 from 5-6.15pm (8-11years) and from 6.30- 8.30pm (12-16 years) at St John’s TocH Hall, Bath Street, Largs. The workshops are FREE of charge. Places are limited to 10 for each workshop/age group. Children attending MUST be accompanied by an adult.

To book a place please call our Secretary on 01475689423. Places are limited and we will work on a first come first served basis.


We now have a new History and archive section to the website. At present it has a few articles from the Largs and Millport Weekly New of 100 or more years ago. It also has an archive of past show schedules dating back to 1990.

If anyone has any old photographs, show schedules, newspaper cuttings or other memorabilia relating to the Horticultural Society, we would like to borrow it, for copying/scanning, so that it can be included in this section of our website. Please contact the Secretary

We have a guestbook for any comments which you may have about the website
