why vegetative phase precede flowering in plants

Dear it is the growth phase which has to take place before flowering... otherwise the reproductive organs will not develop properly.

Flowers need energy, so usually there is a vegetative phase before flowering.
also Remember that not all plants have a vegetative phase. Parasite plants (e.g. Orobanche) build roots toward a host and then directly the flowers, without any vegetative (green) phase.
