How to grow tulips in a DIY greenhouse
The flower shop in Melbourne’s northern suburbs has become a hive of activity as hundreds of flower-sitting bees gather for the annual Tulip Festival.
The flower garden has become so busy that flower sellers have taken to calling it the tulip factory.
But the flower shop is not the only thing buzzing in the garden.
The bees have been building their own garden in the greenhouse, which is one of a number of plants being used by the bees.
Kens Flower Shop has become one of the centrepieces of the tulips festival in Australia’s Northern Territory.

There is a lot of interest in tulips, so many flower shops are putting up tents and garden plants in the gardens to keep the flowers from drying up, the flower shops website says.
The flowers are grown by volunteers, and they tend to be the most popular flower in the area.
Organisers of the festival have been planning the festival for about two years and have been trying to find a way to make the event more appealing to the bees as they move on to other things.
In 2014, the flowers were used as part of a charity campaign for young people in the Northern Territory who have not been able to attend school.
Since then, the bees also planted tulips at the flower market, the city flower market and at the festival.
Huge crowds attended the festival last year, and some of the flower sellers at the Flower Shop were wearing masks to protect their identities.
It was a huge success, and the event was sold out within an hour, organisers say.
“The last year we had 10,000 flowers planted, so the number of flowers we planted this year is 10 times that,” said the Flower shop owner, Peter Kempton.
He said the flower garden is an amazing opportunity to connect with the community, and to meet people in a new way.
Mr Kemptson said the bees would do most of the planting in the morning and after the festival, when the flowers have dried.
“They will go back to the flower room and do their own plants,” he said.
Tulip Festival: What to know about the flowers The festival attracts hundreds of thousands of people to the area every year.
Thousands of people are expected to attend the festival on Saturday.
For many people in rural Australia, the tulps are an important symbol of peace and harmony, and it is hoped they will have a positive impact on society.
According to the Tulip Foundation, Australia is home to over 30,000 varieties of tulips.
