The Gestalt Gardener

The Gestalt Gardener

From Mississippi Public Broadcasting

Listen to The Gestalt Gardener Friday mornings at 9 and Saturday mornings at 10 on MPB Think Radio. 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 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.More from The Gestalt Gardener »
