"Cursed" spot in garden, update, quince is OK!

Hi folks!
Google isn't letting me follow up to the thread I started back in January, which is here:
I wrote about my attempts to get a lavender, and then a quince, to grow at a troublesome location. Concerning the quince, I wrote:

Well, time was my friend. By mid-March I saw new buds on a few branches. I decided to see how much, if any, of the plant was still alive. The answer is, all of it! It is fuller and bushier than ever. It finished flowering a few weeks ago.
I really wasn't expecting six full months of dormancy, especially here in coastal California (USDA zone 9, Sunset Zone 16). Is this typical of quinces? How do you suggest that I manage this plant as the summer comes on?
