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.

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!

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. ...
