Flower Pod is a horticultural based Social Enterprise located just outside the historic cathedral town of Southwell in Nottinghamshire.

We are part of Reach Learning Disability, a charity that provides day-centre care and domiciliary support for people with learning disabilities. Flower Pod is one of the four Reach bases in Southwell, Newark and Mansfield.

Our 1.5 acre eco-friendly site creates an enchanting environment where employees, volunteers and people with learning disabilities come together to produce and sell beautiful cut flowers, natural confetti, wreaths and other locally sourced products.

Buying from Flower Pod is a great way to support our activities and contribute directly to reducing our dependency on external funding. Visit the Flower Pod Shop to find out more.

Discover the many ways you can get involved, such as volunteering, providing support as a local business or involving us in local events. Our straw-bale building makes a great venue for educational activities, social events or meetings and you can book a tour of the garden for your own association or group of friends.

If you would like to know more about our services for people with learning disabilities or find out how to get involved in Flower Pod please do contact us – we would love to hear from you.

A fantastic evening at the Flower Pod Quirky Quiz! Well done to the winning team- ‘The Trivial Newton Johns’. Thank you to all who came and to the Southwell Golf Club for supporting the evening. We look forward to seeing you all again next year! ... See MoreSee Less

Our volunteers contribute in so many ways, just keeping Flower Pod working, happy and pretty. Just one example reminding us of their vital presence: working on his own, getting very wet and muddy, Ned has repaired our rickety old bridge that’s long since been out of bounds, so now our clients can access our pond area easier, with a new handrail for those of us who are less stable on our feet. Just one of the things he’s built for us in years of selfless service.

Thank you to all our volunteers. The Pod would not be here without you.

Fantastic Great job Ned and lovely pic of you and Jane xx

That looks amazing - another brilliant project completed!

Well done Ned

Great to show Nottingham Trent University horticulture students round the pod. Some of them just blended right in! They will be growing plants for us as part of their year 2 studies, which is an excellent way for them to get experience of a real world customer, our clients to interact with them and their lovely glasshouses, and Flower Pod to expand its social enterprise with expertly grown plants. ...
