About J Schwanke's Life In Bloom:

J SCHWANKE'S LIFE IN BLOOM is a half-hour lifestyle series about flower arrangement, design and instruction.

Hosted by J Schwanke - a fourth-generation florist, award-winning author and well-known floral educator - the program aims to help viewers have fun with flowers and incorporate their beauty into their homes and everyday lives.

Research shows the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, eases depression, refreshes memory, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner.

The presence of flowers in the workplace also improves workers' idea generation, creative performance and problem-solving skills.

Throughout the 13-part series, J teaches viewers how to use flowers to enjoy these benefits and more.

The series takes viewers all over the world, touring flower farms, greenhouses, markets, festivals and special events.

J also shares his easy arranging tips and techniques, and flower-based food and cocktail recipes.

Guests appear in each episode to discuss how flowers intersect with their lives and interests, such as friend P.

Allen Smith, who joins J on a trip to Moss Mountain Farm for a tour of the spectacular gardens.
