roses and romance


Roses have always been associated with romance ” My love is like a red, red rose…”
We have the luxury of so many colours available all year round, with imports from all over the world. One of my favourites is Memory Lane – a vintage pink, long-lasting rose that opens beautifully. If you have a particular colour rose you’d like to send, give us a call on 020 7831 6776 or mobile 07932 052411 or email janet@stemsfloraldesign.com

Happy New Year to all our clients! It’s so lovely to be back, amongst the flowers after a ten day break.
Thanks to advanced growing methods, there are many flowers now available at this time of year. One of my favourites is the clematis, dainty and long-lasting, that looks great with the traditional winter flowers – anemones, ranunculae and tulips, as well as the narcissus family and hellebores.

Give us a call and help ease someone into this new year with a beautiful bouquet! Call us on 020 7831 6776 or email janet@stemsfloraldesign.com

#Hygge

hygge, flowers
Hyggliga blommor

You see the word Hygge in every magazine & paper at the moment. Like a well kept secret for too long, the Scandinavian love of everything natural & simple has arrived in the UK.
I trained as a florist in Sweden in the 80’s, and was touched by the Scandinavians’ great appreciation of flowers & all things natural. I was lucky enough to study at a residential college by the banks of a lake in Dalarna. We could go out foraging in the mornings for things to use in our displays.
I once went on a tandem cycling holiday on the pretty island of Gotland, and saw the most stunning array of daisies, cornflowers and poppies all over the lush green fields.
I have been far north in Scandinavia, with minus 40 temperature, and experienced the majestic, snow-covered fir trees with birches in their shade.

The winter months are long and dark in Scandinavia, and I think that’s why the arrival of spring and summer are met with such reverence.
We always have a selection of natural cones, twigs, mosses and foliage at Stems – especially at Christmas. Come & visit us, or phone 020 7831 6776. You can also email janet@stemsfloraldesign.com
