Welcome to Flower Pod!

Our unique social enterprise in Southwell, Nottinghamshire offers people with learning disabilities the opportunity to enrich their lives through horticulture. The flowers we cultivate are bought by local people, brightening up homes, businesses and celebrations throughout the community.

Explore our website to buy beautiful locally grown seasonal flowers for any occasion. We pledge to be ‘eco-friendly’, you will not find cellophane or floral foam used in our designs! We prefer to use natural papers, hessian, raffia and up-cycled fabric to tie and wrap in our unmistakable Flower Pod style.

While you are here why not donate to support our work, or even get involved in what we do?

We’d love to hear from you about your first or next visit to Flower Pod, so get in touch any time on 01636 918271 or drop us an e-mail.



Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Update on current day services

Although Covid-19 still prevents us from delivering our normal level of service to people with learning disabilities, we have now started to offer carefully controlled, socially distanced activities at our centres to enable people to stay safe, well and connected and to address risk of deteriorating physical and mental health. Extra measures are in place to keep our clients, staff and volunteers well. All activities comply with latest government Covid-19 regulations and are monitored closely.

We continue to offer our innovative and popular alternative service including online socials and courses, telephone welfare calls, and delivery of activity and wellbeing packs. We are also supporting family carers through new online, telephone and face-to-face communication.

To find out more about current day services at Flower Pod please contact Jane Hufton, Centre Manager at jane.hufton@reachuk.org or telephone 01636 918271.

To find out more about our support for unpaid carers please contact Catherine Shatwell, Carers Matter Manager at Catherine.shatwell@reachuk.org or telephone 07715 648691.

To find out more about the difference your donations make please see our Crisis Response page. Or click to find out more about what we do and how you can get involved today.

It may still be November but it’s already starting to feel festive at Flower Pod. Clients have been making their own natural wreaths, with some very impressive results. Well done everyone! ... See MoreSee Less
