The National Herbarium of Victoria (NHV) and The Royal Botanic Gardens were administratively joined 1857-1873. From 1873 to 1926 both institutions were separate and were administrated by different Depts. They were rejoined in 1926 and have remained so. The NHV , officially known as such since 1897 is now one of several divisions which report to the Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne.
