CID Bio-Science, December 2015

The Pacific Northwest, home to CID Bio-Science, is famous for its dark and dreary winters. Rain drizzles steadily, fog settles in valleys, and evergreens loom against a constant backdrop of grey sky. Located at the southern border of Washington state, we’re far enough north that on the shortest day of the year, December 21, the sun will go down at 4:28 PM.
What makes all of this bleakness bearable? A lush array of plant life. Despite water-logged soils and a decrease in PAR, plants are still active. Holly berries are set, camellias are blooming, and soon bulbs in the soil will wake up and remind us of their presence.
As we wrap up what has been a very busy year, it’s nice to pause and contemplate the slow, predictable way that plants make it through winter.
It has been our pleasure to keep you informed on all of the latest happenings at CID Bio-Science, and we hope you will continue to stay in touch with us by reading our monthly newsletters and blog posts.
From all of us at CID Bio-Science, we wish you an excellent 2016!
