I am a beginner gardener and dont have much knowledge about gardening but I planted 4 bulbs of Calla Lilies about 3 weeks ago but have only seen 1 small sprout of growth out of the 4. How long does it usually take for the lilies to start to grow?

Calla lilies are dependent upon weather and will begin to sprout as soon as the weather is favorable. I'd give the plants another 2 weeks to respond. If they still are not sprouting, it may be that they are planted too deeply. If this is the case, dig and replant them a little higher in the planting hole.

Best wishes with your beautiful new plants!
