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: Bye Kay! Stay In Touch.

    "You're not hungry, just bored!" is a sign Felder has in his refrigerator to keep from eating the stress of social distancing away. Also he has the best garden party on radio to help keep things in perceptive during this difficult time. As always helping with your southern gardening questions Felder is working on something special for the kids at home that need to get dirty in the garden. Then as we get ready to close the show we hear a heartfelt goodbye from one of our favorite callers, Chainsaw Kay.

Super nuck

Whooo whooo good stuff

Like sweet tea on a hot day

Fielders folksy style and gentle demeanor make me feel like I’m visiting kin folk and asking garden advice. He knows his stuff but let’s others keep their own opinions. I listen and I’m in a totally different climate but just relax when I hear Felders show. 5 stars.

Great show!

I love the wisdom and humor of Felder and the audience.
