With flowering quince, I realized I have to watch every other day to get ready for wiring. But nice thing is wires can stay on longer than with Japanese maples. The branches usually don't thicken so fast. On the other hand I do have to clip unwanted suckers and halve large light obstructing leaves constantly. I try to wire thin branches before they lose optimal pliability.
It shed its leaves closer to the trunk instead of at the tips for some reason. There have been skme times where it was a little underwater. I take the ch as nice to take pictures. Can better plan for where to graft branches later.
