SEND FLOWERS from our ONLINE SHOP

We have a shop so you can send flowers online, but also a shop full of flowers and plants that you can visit in Holborn, London WC1. Also known as Bloomsbury, this beautiful area is home to The British Museum, The British Library and many world renowned academic institutions, such as UCL and the LSE. Stems has been in Sicilian Avenue since 1985.

We also deliver flowers to surrounding areas, such as flowers to Covent Garden, WC2 which lies just to the west of Holborn, bouquets to Mayfair, W1, flowers to Soho and Marylebone and the City, which comprises EC1, EC2, EC3 and EC4, including Temple, St. Paul's, Liverpool St Clerkenwell and Bishops Gate. We deliver flowers to the newly refurbished King's Cross area with postcode N1C, HQ of Google and Facebook.

If you find a bouquet you like on the online shop, but would like to add something or change it slightly, just give us a call and discuss flowers by florist over the phone. Payments for flowers and plants can be made over the phone as well as online.

BESTSELLERS

Our online shop starts with our bestsellers list. Most people look no further, as these are our tried and tested bouquets, guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of any recipient. They come in a range of styles and colours, and we substitute the flower content with seasonal blooms to give you the very best of the crop. The bouquets range in price, and we guarantee value for money. We only stock Grade A1 flowers and some foliage and herbs grown by us in our garden in Windsor.

Our floral style is wild, modern and eclectic, reflecting our love of nature, our source of inspiration. Jan trained as a florist in Sweden in the early Eighties, and brought the hand tied bouquet style to London in 1985, when she opened Stems of Holborn. Her flowers have adorned both kitchen tables and palaces in London, and she supplied ITV's star dressing rooms and Green Rooms for over twenty years, making bouquets for every British and Hollywood star who has ever been on a TV show here.

We stock the usual variety of roses, lilies, sunflowers and orchids, but also a range of more unusual flowers, including cabbages, thistle, nerine, protea, grasses, seed heads, herbs, eucalyptus and foliage

The names of our bouquets give a sense of for what sort of occasion they would be suitable. The rainbow colours are popular for the young, and the smart, understated mauves and creams for a more sophisticated recipient. The single colour bouquets also have a certain sophistication, and the textures of the different flowers come to the foreground. Scented flowers can be a feature, or omitted if the recipient has allergy issues. Whatever you need, we will provide you with our expert advice.  

If you're looking for something special, scroll down and take a look at our luxury flower range. With three  flower deliveries a

week, we can source any flower you desire with a couple of day's notice.

Seasonal Collections

We have now added seasonal flower collections to our online shop, for delivery in Bloomsbury, Holborn, Covent Garden, Mayfair and central London.

The pinks, mauves and cream flowers of a typical English summer are replaced with golds, oranges and rusts of autumn, with the textured seed heads and berries of the season. You can collect a bouquet at our store in Sicilian Avenue, Holborn, or we will deliver to Holborn, Bloomsbury, Clerkenwell, Mayfair, Soho and all neighbouring areas same day.

Our winter collection contains moss covered branches, contorted hazel, twisted willow, scented blue pine and cones, producing a really wintry feel. For Christmas, we add a bit of sparkle, or you can keep it in the Scandinavian Hygge style, with a more natural finish.

Tulips and daffodils epitomise spring, after the snowdrops and hellebores wave goodbye to winter. A tulip bouquet delivered to a friend to say Happy Spring is a lovely gesture, and will guarantee a smile. 

Special Events

You can place an order for Christmas flowers to collect from our flower shop in Bloomsbury, or we will deliver. We make Christmas wreaths, garlanding, table arrangements and bouquets - all with a Christmas theme. 

Valentine's Day

The busiest day of the year for florists, Valentine's Day is such a fun day. It's amazing to see the delight on people's faces when they receive an often anonymous bouquet of flowers!

Red roses are a best-seller, but tulips, other colour roses, lilies and more unusual mixed bouquets are all popular. Roses in a box have become popular, but we prefer to leave our best red roses on their elegant long stems - the best way to show them off in their full glory. 

You can book a flower delivery to Bloomsbury in advance, or come and visit our shop at 3, Sicilian Avenue, Bloomsbury and organise a collection of flowers on the day.

Plants

We started stocking a few green plants a while back and they have proven so popular that we now have an entire jungle at the shop in Bloomsbury! From the tiniest succulent to huge ficuses, palms and dracaenas, we have it all. We have a selection of hanging and trailing plants too. 

Popular with university students at UCL and the LSE who live close by in Bloomsbury, and want to make their accommodation feel more like home, we sell pretty pots to go with our selection of houseplants. We also have flowering plants, such as phalaenopsis orchids and stephanotis.

We can deliver plants to Bloomsbury, Holborn, Covent Garden, Clerkenwell, the City and the West End. Just give us a call and we will organise a suitable delivery time for you.

ECO FRIENDLY DELIVERY SERVICE

We are keen to keep a low carbon footprint, and our deliveries are made on foot, by electric vehicles or by pushbike. Our bouquets are tied with garden string and wrapped in brown paper with a raffia bow. We use paper bags if you wish your flowers to be aqua packed. We don't use any form of heating in the shop, so the flowers are kept at a natural temperature. 

We make same day deliveries, but you can choose any day in advance for a delivery. We have two phone lines, and you can contact us 24/7 to discuss a bouquet, an event or that special something you've been looking for.

We also stock green plants from all over the world, and can source any plant you require. We can impart our plant knowledge to ensure the plant will be happy in its proposed environment. 

Green plants are the perfect way to make your office or home more healthy. Plants emit oxygen all day, and also clean the air we breathe - as well as transforming a room with their grace and beauty. We can deliver plants to you.

FLOWERS FOR ALL OCCASIONS

We supply flowers for all occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries, get well soon, new baby, congratulations, weddings, funerals, condolence bouquets, sorry you're leaving, Sorry, I love you, marriage proposal, wedding anniversary - or just because...

We prefer not to categorise our bouquets too much, simply because different colours and flowers hold a different meaning to us all. We want your experience with us to be truly unique, and we will listen to what you are looking for and advise accordingly.

WEEKLY FLOWERS

We supply weekly flowers to many offices in Bloomsbury, Holborn, Clerkenwell, Fleet St., Temple and High Holborn. Our delivery of a bouquet in a vase takes away any hassle for you. Our flowers our Grade A1 - something you will never find in a supermarket, and they are delivered straight to your office. 

We deliver weekly or fortnightly bouquets to your home. This is a Five Star service. The flowers arrive conditioned and ready arranged for you. We ask for images of your home so we can match our flower choice to give the most beautiful impact to your surroundings. Or we can make a home visit to provide some expert advice on both flowers and plants you might like.

We offer a fortnightly plant maintenance service for houseplants. We will dust, prune, water, position and change plants when necessary. This service is available in Bloomsbury, King's Crss, N1C, Holborn, Covent Garden, Clerkenwell and Mayfair. 

We have an annual subscription, where you can choose your own annual budget and we will devise the best way to use your budgat. This could be a bouquet of flowers once a month, or a green or flowering plant. We will use your budget to best effect.
