Dormancy

Dormancy is the yearly cycle in a plants life when growth and other activity ceases or slows and the plant rests. It is normal that during this time the leaves have fallen or the top growth has died down.

This naturally occurs in winter; but not always. In some cases plants will go dormant during their growing season due to unfavorable weather such as a drought or during low or high temperatures.

It is not uncommon that in these extreme situations the plant may die down to the roots. In the case with seeds and bulbs, this period is thought of as a suspended state of growth. Fertilizing should be withheld when a plant is in dormancy.
