Shirley Bovshow’s show blooms on new GAC app
The advice offered by Shirley Bovshow in the Great American Community’s new abridged series “Eden Living with Shirley Bovshow” goes beyond practical tips for caring for all the plants and flowers in your garden. The program available through Great American Media’s free direct-to-consumer app also offers practical suggestions for dealing with the changing environment.
“Eden Living with Shirley Bovshow” is one of 15 all-new original short series in the app featuring well-known experts in cooking, fashion, lifestyle, gardening, pets, parenting, DIY, relationships, philanthropy , fitness, wellness and devotion. New episodes of all the first series on regular dates throughout the year.
The Bovshow series is available on Thursdays and Saturdays. Being part of the lineup is perfect for Bovshow.
“What I’ve found is that I really enjoy teaching,” Bovshow says. “It’s not just about doing the work in real life, but being able to articulate it and make it easy for people to understand.”
His passion for plants did not start at a young age. The self-proclaimed city dweller grew up in the urban areas of Los Angeles. She didn’t even visit the parks much. She was in her twenties when her husband introduced her to the great outdoors and this newfound interest has stayed with her ever since.
Bovshow — a nationally recognized landscaping and landscaping artist who has won numerous design awards — says the short form program for GAC is something she works on every day. She has actually spent decades helping people with their gardening questions. In addition to her own blog and a media company that focus on foliage, she was the gardening/lifestyle expert on Hallmark’s “Home & Family” for nine seasons. Bovshow was also the co-host of “The Garden Police” on the Discovery Channel.
Each job has allowed Bovshow to answer questions about flowers and plants. She has seen concerns change over the years, with drought now a very hot topic.
“People look to me for advice on landscapes and gardens nationwide,” Bovshow says. “The drought has changed a lot of approaches to gardening. It also changed your aesthetic because it forces you to see the beauty of the types of plants that you might not have considered if you weren’t in a drought.
