Each week, horticulturalist Felder Rushing shares stories, answers questions and just talks gardening. Of course, you’ll hear a bit of “cheesy music” in every program and you might hear a bad joke or two as well. The Gestalt Gardener is a long-time favorite on MPB Think Radio, due in no small part to Felder’s laid-back, your-neighbors-might-talk-but-so-what approach to gardening.
Email Felder anytime at garden@mpbonline.org and listen Friday mornings at 9 and Saturday mornings at 10 to The Gestalt Gardener on MPB Think Radio. And in the meantime, as Felder says, get out and get dirty.

    The Gestalt Gardener | Smug Mug

    Gardening does not have to be a competition but knowing your tomatoes or potatoes came out better than your neighbors can make for some pretty smug backyard conversations. Felder brought in a highly satisfied (aka smug) feeling into the studio as he showed off his potato from his garden. During this round of southern gardening questions about bugs and ill spotted plants, Felder also sets the stage for one more "Felder on The Road" event. Tune in!
    (Cover photo plants: heirloom montbretia, tropical milkweed and its seeds)

    The Gestalt Gardener | I've Been Everywhere

    The Gestalt Gardener | I've Been Everywhere

    After over a month of live shows across Mississippi, Felder Rushing is back in the studio. Sort of like riding a bike Felder gets back in the groove of solo studio life while the cheers from a live audience are just a recent memory. Yet two callers from today's show were actually friends he met on the road. Always at the ready with his brand of advice, he helps with your southern gardening questions and talks about how fun it was (safely) bringing the garden party to the people. Also, Felder gifts Java some garden fresh cauliflower he picked right before the show. This was a special grow for a plate of boneless cauliflower wings. Now let's get dirty!

    The Gestalt Gardener | Before the Road

    The Gestalt Gardener | Before the Road

    Felder Rushing is getting ready to hit the road! But before he takes his John Deere green pickup truck around the state, he answers another round of southern gardening questions. And one that permeates throughout the episode is about getting rid of lubbers. Does anybody have a shop vac handy? But seriously Felder shares his latest garden bundle, brings in two cheesy tunes, and sets up a plant swap with a fan that has something special from Arizona. Let's get dirty!

Southern-eccentric gardening. A joy.

Felder Rushing paints his bean supports purple, sticks plastic flowers into live plants that look too plain, and is raising a baby opossum named Pogo. Callers with a marvelous range of Mississippi accents ask about problems like tomatoes with black bottoms, and Felder, a trained horticulturalist, offers useful fixes. But he’s also sneaking in life lessons: live and let live; be fully part of this living world; and a few wrinkly leaves won’t kill you.
