I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

That varies between species and even between varieties sometimes. Some roses for example root in 2 weeks while others take a month or more. Conditions in the rooting chamber (moisture, temperature, etc.) and whether or not you use a rooting hormone also affect speed of rooting.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
