The company outgrows its original Obi Obi premises, and relocates to a purpose-built state-of-the-art facility in Woombye, QLD. This move allows the business to diversify into other horticultural industries. A hothouse is built; and a new business set up, Australian Plant Specialists, to sell Christmas bush (Ceratopetalum) to growers. This business evolves into a wholesale tubestock nursery.
A tissue culture laboratory is started to conduct research into growing Australian native foliages. Now known as VitroFlora, the business supplies commercial volumes of tissue culture to the horticultural industry.
The fallout from the Global Financial Crisis forces the foliage business, Cedar Hill Flowers & Foliage, to seek a more diverse market. Premium Greens Australia is created as the sales vehicle for these markets, and all trading in foliages is now under that company name. As a result the business is now a truly global concern, selling into Japan, South Korea, China, USA, Canada and across Europe and the Middle East.
A downturn in the wholesale nursery industry prompts the creation of Australian Plants Online, to sell tubestock plants previously only available to the trade, direct to consumers, via the internet.
