The Gestalt Gardener
The Gestalt Gardener | Gardening All-Call
Felder Rushing and Java Chatman open up the conversation about gardening today! It's hot, it's muggy, it's humid and it may be a bit too early to plant but we keep going one step at a time. Email Felder anytime email@example.com 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 | Floriade Felder
While Felder spends most summers in Europe, it is not all rest and relaxation. Just this past week he made a trip to Amsterdam for the International Horticultural Exhibition Floriade in Almere. Floriade only happens every ten years and Felder reports some of the exhibition's highlights and how Mississippi plants and flowers are always a part of the showcase. During another round of southern gardening questions, he talks about fruit ripeness, dealing with insects, and how your next road trip can be much more awesome (or weird) with RoadsideAmerica.com.Show Links:RoadsideAmerica.comFelder Rushing - Bottle TreesFloriade.com
The Gestalt Gardener | Heat Streak
This summer has been brutal and the heatwave made its way to Felder with record-setting high temperatures hitting Europe. If you are tending to the garden this time of year, please stay hydrated and wear the largest sun-shading hat your head will allow when outside. During this round of southern gardening questions, Felder talks about maypops, passionfruit, lawn watering, and more. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | Tomato Sugar
Felder is not one to shy from his opinions. He is also someone who is quick to admit when he is wrong. But for some reason, his changing views on tomatoes have been a few years in the making. Along with another round of summer gardening questions, Felder "eats some crow" after being proven wrong about the tomato ripening process. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | Bottle Tree Man
Bottle trees are more about attitude than gardening. You do not even have to have a garden to place a bottle tree in your yard. Felder has compiled just about everything he has seen and heard about bottle trees into one location: https://felderrushing.blog/bottle-trees/. Between answering questions about stink bugs and scorched plants he talks about bottle trees and how they bring a touch of "glass" to any space. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | English Breakfast
Felder is back sharing tips for dealing with your plants and this oppressive heat. Also with an uptick in insect activity, he talks about ways to protect your plants. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | Liverpool Living
It's Felder Rushing's birthday and he is turning a year older and hopefully wiser. Lol! Either way, he continues to make time for your southern gardening questions while spending a birthday across the pond in Liverpool. Oh and happy birthday to Sir Paul McCartney too! Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | I'll Be Back
From time to time Felder Rushing will skip an incredible Mississippi Summer to enjoy cooler temperatures in Europe. Also, he will take in a flower show or two, but no matter where he is his heart is with Mississippi. Checking in to answer another round of southern gardening questions, he tackles shade trees, wild oranges, and the best ways to move plants to a new residence. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener |Flower Food
After completing his 40-year quest of lecturing in all 82 Mississippi counties, Felder is back to answer another round of southern gardening questions. The top of June is prime time for people to get out in the dirt and Felder fields questions about fruit trees, rooting fresh cuttings, and more. He also hears from a fellow that has a newly acquired taste for gardenia petals. Who knew?!? Anyway, let's get dirty!
