Why is it that the best time to plant trees is the dormant season but the best time to plant plants is the growing season when they are actively growing

The Dormant season is the best time to buy and plant.

Not sure where you heard that the growing season is best for planting.

Plants should not be disturbed during the growing season.

sorry should have said repot plants. It says on Levington John Innes No.3 repotting is best in spring https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:TqCr0iBQkbEJ:www.lovethegarden.com/files/lv-ji-no3-label.pdf+&hl=en&gl=ie&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESjmERGdM4AU1LoDChC-AR7wjAvWT97nhQkYlJ0_5o3vx-Utye3Sql6CcMvrVsi9TYFYwkVaux_mUY_uWg7FqKFRwpY6Cq1DwnxNxCAEQ5yGCy7Xi6wJs9pT7wQO85C5ovBFvpw6&sig=AHIEtbSnmnMGwb6kNV31Wk9tQSEvjnoVzQ

I guess plants that need repotting are under stress of some kind already, and so; if these plants are actively growing they can recover faster once in their new pot.

I spring vegetative growth is quite fast and so the plants can quickly develop and recover new roots.

Still, planting and transplanting is best done in the dormant season, and id happily repot then too..
