A Fortnightly Bucket of Uncut Stems
£30.00 every 2 weeks
A bucket of Uncut Stems every fortnight.
- Seasonal and sourced from British growers*.
- Delivered into a bucket (or vase, or jug!) which you will leave outside your door.
- Stems arrive as a roll, un-arranged and uncut so you can have fun creating your own arrangement.
- Included is a letter with information on each Stem, styling tips, grower updates and a guide on how to edit your vase to extend vase life.
Uncut Stems is a community. We encourage you to share what you do with your flowers each fortnight and get inspiration from others in return. #showusyourStems
If you do not have a safe, accessible space to leave a bucket then please leave alternative delivery instructions ie. ‘buzz our flat, leave with a neighbour if we’re not home’.
Please note, British stems can vary in vase life between 3-12 days, and might age differently to mass grown, imported stems. They come in a beautiful range of lengths and shapes and sometimes will have small marks from the rain on their petals. Photos show an example spring, summer, autumn and winter bunch. Your first payment is for your first delivery, from then it will be taken fortnightly. Please see FAQs for more info – be sure to have read all of the FAQs at the bottom of this page before signing up.
*At the bookends of the season, or in the instance of exceptionally bad British weather, some of your Stems might be from trusted imported growers. We will always let you know when this is the case and consider it as part of the education around mindful flower sourcing.
You simply place a vessel of water into a safe, accessible (ideally sheltered) spot, ready to receive your flower delivery.
Deliveries happen from late afternoon into the evening (10:30pm latest) and you will receive a text once we’ve made the drop so you can bring your flowers safely inside and away from the elements.
We endeavour to make sure as many of your Stems as possible are from chemical-free growers, but also work closely with larger commercial growers based in the UK.At the bookends of the season, or in the instance of exceptionally bad British weather, some of your Stems might be from trusted imported growers.

Many of us are used to flowers that are imported and commercially grown, with pencil perfect straight stems and symmetrical petals that last for a freakishly long time. We want to educate you on real flowers and true vase life, which is 3-7 days. Part of the fun is editing down throughout the week to extend vase life for as long as possible. There’s real joy to be had from an evolving arrangement.
We aim to include at least 19 Stems in your buckets each fortnight which will be made up of a mixture of focal, feature and medium flowers plus foliage, often there will be extras.
If you’re away then you can pause your delivery up until Tuesday the week ahead* of your next delivery or leave the flowers with a neighbour/send to a friend by diverting. Both features are available via your account.*Direct debit payments are processed each Wednesday in the week ahead of your next delivery.
You’ll just need to sign into your account and hit ‘cancel’. You can cancel up until Tuesday the week ahead* of your next delivery.*Direct debit payments are processed each Wednesday in the week ahead of your next delivery.
Payments are taken as a fortnightly direct debit via Go Cardless.
We’re working on it. We have big plans for Uncut Stems and our mission is to bring British flowers to as many people as possible. Make sure your name is added to the list so that we know you want us in your area!
