Quince are the next flowering branches to become available. They come in white and pink and there are rare red ones that never seem to make it away from the coasts. The quince have spiky thorns so handle carefully and they open us and hold for a decent amount of time. Plan ahead with them so that they are open when you need them to be their prettiest. They are here from now until about Mother’s Day. They look really beautiful with french tulips and lilies for a sleek and clean long lasting arrangement. As with all flower arrangements, use a floral preservative and change the water regularly. Giving a fresh cut every few days can also extend the life of all flowers and branches.
