The cycle is their growth cycle.... i.e when they are in growth.  Basically
you tend to find that plants are winter or summer growers (I know this is a
generalisation, but you get the idea <grin>) which gives you an idea when
to expect leaves etc.  Flowers of course will just depend on the plant type
as some flower at beginning, during or end of the leaves depending what
they are.

That is my understanding of the cycles that Dell sent, but I am more than
happy to be corrected if I am wrong ('cause then I'll know what it REALLY
means <big grin>).
