Upon earning his coveted “senior citizen” status and beginning to receive pension checks from nearly 30 years of work in Canada, Dr. Dirt - longtime friend, fellow “garden traveler” and popular Gestalt Gardener co-host for the past three years - has decided to “take it to the garden” by retiring from public broadcasting and appearances. Along with tens of thousands of loyal listeners (including many self-proclaimed “non-gardeners”), Felder will dearly miss “Dirt” and his down-to-earth wisdom, affable repartee, delicious recipes, small-town “shout-outs” and weekly fresh-cut flower bouquets. And of course that deep, mellifluous chuckle! Happy gardening trails, friend!
THE SHOW MUST GO ON
Felder will continue his call-in gardening program, now in its 25th year, with some slight changes, including more guests and a website-featured “Felder’s Favorite” plant of the week.
