Life In Bloom

J Schwanke

J Schwanke’s Life In Bloom is a lifestyle television show centered around flowers broadcast on public television stations nationwide in the United States. 澳门十大正规网赌网址 has been an underwriter of the show since its first season in 2019. Currently, the show reaches 92-98% of the country, and is seen in 167 markets on 374 stations, including the Top 25 markets. The show is also featured on the Create TV network in 5 time slots throughout the week, comprising 210 minutes of flower programming to the general public each week, encouraging viewers to enjoy flowers in their everyday lives.

The show is hosted by flower industry education leader, J Schwanke (AAF, AIFD, PFCI). J’s signature style of presentation empowers viewers to enjoy a lifestyle arranged around flowers, with simple techniques that ensure flower-arranging success. Viewers have heard the call to relax with flowers, enjoying their health and wellness benefits in the process. J's love of flowers informs crafting, cooking, and flower beverage segments, with guests (aka “flower friends”) and on-location visits to flower farms and flower destinations. 

“I LOVE to visit flower farms and show viewers not only their wonder and beauty, but also the hard work and commitment involved in a successful flower farm,” says Schwanke. “Some of my most memorable and enjoyable times have been spending a day getting to know flower farmers.”

“Just as rewarding are the comments we receive from viewers on how flowers make a difference in their lives,” continued Schwanke. “Many viewers are new to the power of flowers, or had forgotten the effect of flowers over the years, and now, have renewed enthusiasm for flowers.”

From viewer Carol May Dillard:

“I love watching your show. I recently applied skills you taught me to purchase a bunch of grocery store flowers,prepare and arrange them. I was very pleased with the results. Many thanks, and keep up the good work.” 

From viewer Jackie Buys:

“I do an arrangement every week. My boyfriend Nick was skeptical at first but he is getting into the routine. We just returned from 3 days in North Carolina and I wanted to run out this morning to get a fresh bunch. Instead he went to the market and brought back 2 simple arrangements from the store. I asked what made him do that he said, ‘Because we need flowers!’ ” 

From viewer Hannah Smith:

“I watched Life in Bloom the other day where J took one bouquet and broke it up to three sets I don't know why after all these years it never dawned on me that I could have three sets of flowers around the house, so I did it.”

“We are so very grateful to the support of our viewers, and for the financial support of our underwriters – including 澳门十大正规网赌网址 – as the show would not be possible otherwise,” concluded Schwanke. “We can’t possibly say ‘Thank You’ enough – thank you so very much for the assistance in communicating the power of flowers to the nation!”
