Hi Martins,

This phrase means to settle down somewhere. To establish a home by spending time and creating relationships, networks, etc. in that location. Just like a seed grows roots and then doesn't move :)

Hi Martins,

I assume you just refer to the general expression of planting roots - not specific to an industry or functional practice, since you didn't mention that.

To plant roots means just to stick to 'something' (could be a geography, work position, ...). Visually you might want to imagine a tree - once the tree is for a certain period of time in the same place, it starts to develop roots and is sticking to that place .. and it gets more and more difficult over time to change it.

Hope this helps - if so, please be so kind and give it a thumbs-up with the green upvote button below!

Hello!

It´s a lovely metaphore, we use it also in Spanish. It means settling down in one place, as plants set their roots and the don´t move.

Cheers,

Dear Martins,

It means to settle down at one place (country, city) and develop your life there. Not traveling here and there.
