Dormant Plants: Your Top Questions, and Answers

Dormant Plants Dormancy is your garden’s practice of continuing to thrive during cold weather conditions by entering a state of inactivity or minimal activity, saving its energy for a time when it can be better put to use. Even though it doesn’t look as though they’re thriving on a surface level, your perennial plants are basically hibernating and conserving energy until more suitable weather conditions come back around, which is smart, and crucial to their survival and capability to regrow the following year. Plants don’t just go into a dormant-like state during cold weather conditions, but can also enter dormancy during other times of stress, such as extreme heat or drought. During such adverse weather conditions, many plants, especially trees, enter a temporary dormancy, shedding their leaves early to conserve the low levels of moisture that they have on hand in order to survive until conditions improve.  WHY DO PLANTS GO DORMANT IN THE WINTER? During dormancy, plants go inactive and conserve their energy until better weather conditions for plants present themselves. When this occurs, your dormant plants wake up and return to business as usual. This happens naturally as seasons and weather change. Plants are triggered into dormancy because…
