Colourful profusion a festival inclusion

Castlemaine’s Terry Moloney is quick to acknowledge the work of the previous owners when discussing Rosebank, the beautiful garden he shares with his wife Meg Clancy.
But given that he and Meg have been at Rosebank for the past eight years, since moving from Sydney, it’s also apparent a serious gardener now resides within as well.
Situated in Castlemaine’s leafy Bowden Street, Rosebank is a circa 1860s weatherboard house cossetted in its abundant half acre garden featuring a profusion of classic cottage plants including some 150 or so rose bushes. It’s just one of the 22 beautiful gardens that are now opening to the public as part of the Festival of Gardens that starts this weekend and runs through Melbourne Cup Week to November 11. Catch our chat with Terry – plus our festival Weekender read – in today’s Castlemaine Mail.
