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

Even though our centres must remain closed for now, we continue to support people with learning disabilities and their families. Our crisis response support includes interactive online socials and courses, telephone welfare calls, distribution of activity and welfare packs, help to source vital supplies and support to trouble-shoot problems.

The pandemic and lockdown present particular challenges to people with learning disabilities and their families. Some are facing crisis situations. To meet this urgent need our expert staff are trialling safe ways to use our centres to support people at risk. All activity is thoroughly risk assessed by senior managers and complies with latest government guidelines on supporting people with learning disabilities and autism. Our Reach Care staff continue to support people with learning disabilities on a one-to-one basis in their homes; we work closely with Nottinghamshire County Council and other agencies to co-ordinate our activities, ensuring that all recommended hygiene and safety practice is observed.

Please contact our Head Office on 01636 819066 if you have urgent questions regarding our service provision or e-mail info@reachuk.org.

Thanks BBC Gardeners' World Live for wonderful memories of planting in the rain and telling gardeners all about Flower Pod's work. All done by volunteers - especially designer and chief planter Nicola. Right now we're appreciating our wonderful volunteers more than ever as we start to rescue the garden from lockdown neglect! ...

Another #30secondsofsummer.
This week’s sunshine lives on in the polytunnel sunflowers. Did you know that the ‘flower’ is actually an inflorescence made up of hundreds of florets that each make one seed - and don’t they make a perfect pattern!
