Now that spring is here, it's only a matter of time before tulips start blooming in gardens across the country.
But many local flower shops have already started selling bouquets of spring flowers.
We visited Pioneer Flower Farms to find out how these blooms make it to market.
Pioneer Flower Farms is one of the largest flower bulb farms in North America, producing over 40 million blooms per year.
Sales representative Scott Vanderwal says spring is their busiest time of year -- so they've employed extra help to assist with the rush.
Most of the farm's tulips come from Holland, but they're all grown here in Canada.
The flowers are grown and then placed in storage for freshness. Once flowers are harvested, they're on store shelves in about two days.
