The seasonal cycling between growth and dormancy has received little attention despite its importance for plant behaviour. Many factors are involved in dormancy regulation, which include environmental factors, such as phytohormones, photoperiod and temperature. In this review, we reconsider seasonal cycles of growth and dormancy in view of dormancy within the meristem, together with recent exciting developments of phytohormones and epigenetic in the study of plants.
