Hi! As I'm planning to landscape my backyard, I'm wondering how long i should expect to wait before new baby trees I plant will bloom. Since I've had so much luck ordering perennials (through bluestoneperennials) and such bad luck with my local nurseries, I assumed I would do the same for small flowering trees (forestfarm.com anyone?) - maybe some dogwoods, redbuds, hammelis....
Should I plant little mail-order trees and then plant flowers to keep me happy until the trees are old enough to bloom, or should I buy bigger older trees from nurseries figuring they'll bloom sooner?
