Flower Pod is truly a unique facility – and one we are all extremely proud of.

A 1.5-acre site, surrounded by farmland on the edge of Nottingham Trent University’s Brackenhurst campus, our horticultural social enterprise provides outdoor therapeutic sessions. Here, our clients (with the support of staff and local volunteers), grow and sell beautiful cut flowers, enjoy learning horticultural and floristry skills, and gain in confidence; building the capabilities needed for independent living.

Flower Pod also is a place to relax, build new friendships, enjoy physical activity and get close to nature.

This very special site also generates much-needed income for Reach through the sale of flowers to the community and beyond. Our flowers are bought for weddings, funerals, events and celebrations. We also make our own environmentally-friendly, natural petal confetti.  Flower Pod is hugely popular with customers who love being able to buy locally grown flowers whilst supporting Reach.

Click here to buy your bouquets, centrepieces and confetti today!

Flower Pod is available for hire to corporate clients and for events. We host corporate teams for volunteering activities. Organisations including Marks & Spencer, Experian and Boots repeatedly join us, with many more coming along throughout the year, all telling us how rewarding a day with us is.

If you would like to order your flowers, get involved as a client, carer, volunteer or donor, visit the Flower Pod site or call 01636 918271.

Find us at: Home Farm, Brackenhurst Lane, Southwell, Nottinghamshire, NG25 0QL. Call us on 01636 918271.

Hello, I’m Jane…
There aren’t many mornings I wake up and think, ‘Oh no, I’ve got to go to work again’!
I am surrounded by great people, in a glorious setting, doing something I love.
Flower Pod embodies teamwork, commitment and a whole lot of fun.
Nurturing people is my passion – to be doing it in a garden? Dreamy!

Shaken, not stirred.

While we’re closed we’re sending snippets of the garden each day to distract and relax anyone out there who needs it.

Why not post your own - 30 second video of anything in your garden that’s small, simple, slow or spellbinding.

All our best wishes and thanks to the staff Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust King’s Mill, as they work tirelessly and heroically.

We hope the spring bulbs our clients planted there in autumn are giving staff and patients a glimmer of joy and hope at this difficult time.

So kind of the Community Involvement team to send us the pics! Made our day. We’ll be back to carry on the project ASAP.
