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.

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.
