The Gestalt Gardener
The Gestalt Gardener | Felder's Fish
Starting small is a great motto when approaching the art of gardening. Start with a pot, then move to a box and next thing you know you will be maintaining a beautiful garden. Or in Felder's case start with a coffee mug water garden before you graduate to the full-sized pond. During this round of southern gardening questions, Felder talks about magnolia tree roots, small peppers, and just about everything in between. Also with his cheesy tune, Felder pays tribute to one of the first true superstars of space. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener | Persimmon Predictions
When Felder is not on the road he loves a good show-n-tell segment in the studio. Today he brings in a persimmon seed to help predict the upcoming winter season. It may just be folklore but this is common practice in many parts of the country. Also during another round of southern gardening questions, Felder shares his opinion on the Farmers Almanac and planting by the moon. It is October and things are getting spooky. Let's get dirty!
