The Gestalt Gardener
The Gestalt Gardener: After The Rain
Felder is in a chipper mood even after getting so much (much needed) rain in his garden. And with the wet ground its a great time to place out your plants that love the cold weather. After opening the show with a few calls to Felder chats with Don VanDerwerken from JD Farms and the Sweet Mississippi Tea Festival. And according to Don they owe Felder for their start in tea production. Then when the interview is done it's nonstop southern garden talk with an ear-worm of a cheesy tune. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener: Fall Cultivation
Last episode Felder talked about spray painting plants in his garden green that were brown. Why? Because it made him happy! There are really just a few rules to maintaining a garden and at the top of that list is: Enjoy Yourself! During today's garden party (and every garden party) Felder trumpets this message while answering your southern gardening questions. Also he chats with Dr. Gary Bachman and brings a cheesy tune from one of his favorite singers. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener: Golden Garden
Felder Rushing is not hard to spot, especially in his big green garden truck. But you won't see him driving before a show. He usually walks from his cottage and picks up some flowers along the way. (If nobody's looking!) On today's show Felder talks about the flower show at the Mississippi State Fair and his upcoming presentations around the south. Also he pays tribute to a true Mississippi legend, Jim Henson. And it is not a true garden party without your southern garden questions. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener: Green Thumb Trucking
Felder and his mobile garden can be found all around Mississippi and beyond. And for the past two weeks he brought the miniature version of his truck into the studio to track some new growth. Felder may say that he does not like the tend to his home garden but his little truck (and the big one) keep his thumb green throughout the year. During today's garden party Felder answers questions about cutting back, spider lilies, and also reminds us why he is just a country boy. Let's get dirty!
Felder's Mini Before & After
The Gestalt Gardener: September Water
Felder often takes a long trip during the summer and this takes a toll on his garden. Some years are better than others but there were a few surprises this year. Felder has just done something in his garden that he does not often do, but as always this garden party is the best on radio. Felder brings in some fragrant flowers, answers your southern garden questions, and plays a cheesy tune (suggested by a listener). Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener: Front Porch Gardening
Hot, muggy, high humidity. This is the time of year if you want to just sit on your front porch and enjoy your garden, no one will blame you. But now is the time for fall planting. Felder opens today's show talking about preparing for your fall garden and then takes questions about your southern garden. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener: Welcome Back
Felder has been away for a while, but now he is back in Mississippi and somehow the humidity is not here to greet him. This is a pre-Labor Day garden party and is full of all your regular Felder garden advice. But with him live in the studio he has the opportunity to push the wrong buttons. From magnolias to fig trees its time to take a stroll through your southern garden. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener: Missing Mississippi
Felder is on his way back to Mississippi but not before one last international garden party. The heat and humidity may not be his favorite but it holds our gardens like no other place in the world. From centipede grass, moving shrubs, and oleanders, today's show runs the gamut of southern gardens. Let's get dirty!
The Gestalt Gardener: Almost Home
The Gestalt Gardener is just a few shows away from being live in the studio. But before Felder gets back from his overseas adventure later this month, he is still letting you know summer things can still be planted. Time is running out but your summer garden still has time to produce and at the same time falling planting is just around the corner. On today's show Felder shares a timely cheesy tune and reminds us why we should always do what we do best. Let's get dirty!
