Vegetation cycle

Vegetation period (also called vegetation phase or period) is the rhythmically repeating part of the year in which a plant actively grows and unfolds. The study of the biological processes associated with this is called phenology. In viticulture, the vegetation period is the period from the last frost (late frost) in spring to the first frost (early frost) in autumn. This should last at least 180 days. The remaining part of the year in which a perennial plant does not grow is known as the vegetative dormancy, dormancy or rest period. The total of the annually recurring growth phases of a plant, including dormancy, is the growing cycle. In viticulture, however, the vegetative cycle of the vine is also often understood as a period without dormancy
