About Flora Victoria

Flora Victoria was established in 1998, and since then has been servicing the environmental contracting industry with specialist weed control and revegetation services. The company started out with the design, construction and maintenance of two grassland landscapes for Brimbank City Council. This led to more general bushland management including planting, weed control and associated works. The issues encountered with propagating and planting thousands of grasses, and the maintenance of weeds in native grass landscapes prompted us to explore solutions to these problems.

In 2005 the directors of Flora Victoria Graeme Hoxley and Chris Findlay purchased a native grass seed harvester and commenced direct seeding services. In 2007 they started work on the Flora Victoria native grass seed production area to enable a supply of clean certified seed for their seeding projects and for the revegetation industry. Now Flora Victoria supply commercial quantities of high quality native grass seed, making large projects a reality and encouraging the wider use of native grass in revegetation and civil landscaping.

 Our staff are our greatest asset and without their commitment and expertise we can't provide a quality service. To support our staff they are trained and assessed on the job and activities like short grass id courses and field trips are a part of our staff development. Flora Victoria provide flexible employment where possible and encourage a happy work environment and our low staff turn over is a reflection of this. OH&S is also a high priority and Flora Victoria has an enviable safety record.
