Bones start to grow from mother womb. The growth of bone is dependant on growth hormones and androgens. They continue to grow until puberty. Because, the epiphysis of bone is closed when androgens start to increase at the time of puberty. The time of puberty is individual response. Some peoples enter in to puberty at the age of 13,14,15,or 16. After the puberty, the bones do not grow but remodeling continues throughout life.

Generally bones stop growing by the time one finishes developing in puberty. Very little bone growth occurs after that.
