Hey, I'm James
I started The Stem in October 2019, after battling mental health challenges whilst working in the City. Spending time in nature was an important sanctuary for me and enabled me to rebuild my sense of self. I wanted to start a business that helped others find their own connection with nature by making plants and gardening more accessible than ever.
is to share plant happiness by making plants and gardening more accessible than ever before, in the most sustainable way possible.
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.
