The Vic Alps Nursery is part of Mt Hotham Resort Management Board's environment program. It supplies the plant tube stock for rehabilitation projects on the mountain.
The nursery has evolved after lengthy research into germinating and propagating alpine and sub-alpine species of the Australian mainland. This work has been supported by the Victorian government's conservation department and La Trobe University. Production standards were established by Elizabeth MacPhee, an expert horticultural scientist with many years experience in the production of high altitude plants; Rebecca Read, the nursery’s principal horticulturist continues to refine methods of propagation for alpine species.
The RMB employs environment officer Bev Lawrence. Bev is a great contact for anyone who is considering revegetation work for a site at Mt Hotham. Click here for more information.
