Welcome to the web pages
of the
Largs & District
Horticultural Society

The Largs & District Horticultural Society hold their annual flower show in Largs, Ayrshire, Scotland in August. They also present some talks during the winter months.

Largs Flower Show 2020 Cancelled

One impact of the lockdown has been the extra time people have been able to spend in their gardens. This year , more than ever before, the care and attention lavished by experienced gardeners and the thousands who are trying to grow for the first has resulted in the best displays of plants and flowers and many people are having their first taste of home grown vegetables. It is ironic then, that the decision has been taken to cancel this year’s Largs Flower Show. With only a break for two World Wars and their immediate aftermath the Show has been held every year since 1841.

However to still allow members to show off their handiwork there is now a Face book page, (Largs Horticultural Society) where members can post photographs, give tips and hints or ask questions about any problems they may have. (No guarantees with the answers).

The committee will be reviewing the situation regarding Covid-19 and hope that the normal activities of the Society, including the 2021 Flower Show, can be resumed albeit with some restrictions at some point in the future.


Our next Annual Show will be held at the Dunn Memorial Hall of St John's Church Hall, Largs in August 2021. The main show schedule will be able to be obtained either as a download from this site or from the Secretary around May/June 2020.
