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.

🌳 In the last year, we’ve planted or given away more than 6,000 new trees - 1,000 of which were handed out to town and parish councils as well as community groups in Newark and Sherwood. @FlowerPodReach were among the groups taking advantage of the free trees....

Going, going, almost gone! Only a few of our super hanging baskets left... £24 each. 01636 918271 to reserve yours. Packed with summery colour and looking splendid. Lots of plants for sale too! All proceeds go to help @reach_ld do more amazing work. Please RT!


Wonderful to see #ConnectWithNature is the theme for #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek2021
We’re lucky and so grateful @FlowerPodReach that we can support our clients to do this every day 🌱
