‘Apri­cot Nec­tar’ is a hardy rose with a soft fra­grance that does well at Rock­y­bah; sil­ver-fo­liaged plants, in­clud­ing spiky car­doons, and yel­low roses thrive in a sunny cor­ner of the gar­den; a stone seat backed by a haze of self-sown white cen­tran­thus pro­vides a quiet spot to con­tem­plate the re­sults of 36 years of ded­i­cated gar­den­ing; the out­door eat­ing area has spec­tac­u­lar views across the 1200-hectare cat­tle and sheep prop­erty: “We love the way we can see out to the land­scape and the plant­ings fur­ther away from the house,” says Anne.
