The Charleston Lowcountry Rose Society will meet at James Island Town Hall, 1238-B Camp Road., James Island, SC 29412 on Sunday, Oct. 2. Social Hour – 2:30 pm; Meeting – 3:00 pm. The program is Rooting Roses by Kathy Woolsey. Meeting is open to the public. Admission is free.
October is a good time to propagate old garden roses and share them with friends. Horticulturist Kathy Woolsey will show you how to root roses with just stuff you have around the house. Please bring cutting from one of your favorite roses. Use a ball point pen and write the name of the rose on the leaves. If you have any plastic sleeves that newspapers come in, please bring them and hand pruners. Other materials will be provided.

She has a degree in Horticulture from VA Tech and is the former Garden Curator of Cypress Gardens, where she tended a collection of 150 antique roses. She is a garden and nature writer and regularly contributes to The JI Messenger, South Carolina Gardener Magazine and Planting Seeds Sustainable Living Magazine.
