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 | New Mug Felder

    The Gestalt Gardener | New Mug Felder

    Felder has a new mug and is working hard to whip it into shape. Nothing can replace the special feeling people got when they saw his coffee-stained mug. There was almost a raffle for one lucky winner to the opportunity to clean it. Yet Felder now has his brand new mug and maybe we will revisit that contest after he works on it for a while. Felder tells a few bad puns between your southern gardening questions and shares his excitement for some upcoming flower shows. Let's get dirty!

    The Gestalt Gardener | Smug Mug

    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)

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.
