About Us

James Folger headshot the stem

Hey, I'm James

I founded The Stem in 2019 after a three and a half year Investment Banking career.

After suffering from stress and anxiety I travelled extensively to remote places to connect with nature, and this became the tonic for my mental health challenges.

I decided that I wanted to create a business that would help others to connect with nature, through plants and gardening.

At The Stem, this is what we are driven by, a desire to share plant happiness and build a business for people and the planet

Since we launched our new website at the end of March 2020 we have delivered 20,000 orders to homes, offices and as gifts all over Greater London. Our customers love what we do and we now have over 2,500+ 5* reviews and 4.97/5 score.

Our mission

Is to share plant happiness by making plants and gardening more accessible than ever before, in a planet conscious way.

Sharing plant happiness

Not only do plants look great but there’s also a lot of evidence that plants and access to nature can improve our physical and mental health, including reducing stress and lifting our mood. For those of us that live in cities, with limited access to outdoor space, having houseplants is a great way to bring the green indoors.
