Four million pots of flowers will be placed across Beijing to decorate the city for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

15,000 of them will come from a single greenhouse in Luoyang, which is in Henan province. The greenhouse said it had specially engineered the flowers to blossom during the National Day holiday.

This is an exlusive interview with Fu Zhenglin, the chairman of the Luoyang Peony House.
