How Long Should It Take Before I Notice that My Trees and Roses Are Firm?

June 21, 2018

Dear Cathy:

I would like to know how long before I notice that my planting is solid and firm. I am planting trees and roses around my house and my parent's home?

Dear Anonymous:

While I am not an expert on trees and roses, since most of the foods I am planting in my backyard gardens are for eating, after 2 to 3 weeks is when most of my plants started to take shape. 

I also advise you to attend local gardening and flower classes in your area, especially since most trees and flowers are different in each region. Did you know that trees in Texas, where I currently live -- don't grow as big as the trees in my home state - Georgia?

You can ask about both at gardening centers (,, but most, especially Walmart have bad customer service.

You can also find natural gardening centers by going to and put in your city name and the words "Natural Gardeners". Many cities have gardening clubs for plants, herbs and flowers. You can also find flower classes in continued education classes at night.

You probably can get your answer also on, but again these growers, farmers and gardeners will be from different regions so you need to find out what's happening in your region. 

Just go on and put in the search button "Planting Trees" and "Planting Roses" and there will be a ton of information to show you how to do it. Watch at least 10 videos apiece on each topic. This should get you more comfortable with any planting ideas for the future.
