The Plant Craft Cottage is one of the many historic buildings in the RBGV Melbourne Gardens.

Designed as an Under Gardener's Cottage in 1850, it retains many of the original architectural features. Between the years 1853 and 1856, it was home to Melbourne' s first Government Botanist, Dr Ferdinand von Mueller.

Until the 1970s, as H Gate Lodge, it was occupied by a series of 'under gardeners' and since 1981 it has been a craft centre dedicated to the promotion of plant-related crafts.
