Answer: The germination time for seeds depends on which plant you are trying to grow and on the growing conditions (such as soil temperature) at the time you plant. Most seed packets will give you an approximate time to expect. For most annual flowers or vegetables you should see germination in a week or two, for example, but grass seed can take about three weeks and some hardy plants require a stratification period (such as chilling) before they will germinate.
Healthy hybrid tea roses and landscape shrub roses should continue blooming until frost, but they may not bloom as heavily as they did in June. Some roses are once bloomers, these will not bloom again until next year.
Some roses can be started from tip cuttings, the old fashioned shrub roses are the best candidates for this. Most of the modern hybrid tea roses are more commonly grafted or budded to assure a robust root system.
