For October's Master Gardener local program Cypress Gardens Horticulturist Kathy Woolsey explored several important plants that originated from Africa with the slave trade and are still grown in South Carolina today! Okra, watermelon, eggplant, yams, benne seed, gourds and rice will be discussed. Emphasis will be placed on rice cultivation, as Kathy has been perfecting her rice growing techniques for several years now at Cypress Gardens.
