Flowers aren’t just cloned from bulbs, or cuttings, they may also be grown from scratch, from seed (like cosmos and geraniums).

But, how long do flowers take to grow from seeds exactly?

Today’s common gardening question: how long do flowers take to grow from seeds?

The answer: the average species of flower that is planted from seeds, seasonally, or annually, require around three months to grow and bloom. Some flowers from seeds take up to six months or a year to grow and bloom, while others take barely two to three months. The good part is that many seeds that grow from seeds also grow from cuttings, so you can easily clone them.
