A deciduous bushy spreading shrub with clusters of five petalled red flowers in early spring with oval green leaves following giving much pleasure. Fragrant fruit which were once used in preserves appear in autumn. Fully hardy, Flowering Quinces prefer a sunny, well drained soil. For wall-trained shrubs, cut back side shoots after flowering to two or three buds and shorten growth away from the wall during growing season. Benefits from weed, mulch and feed in its early years.
Birds often nest in older shrubs and both birds and bees enjoy its bounty. It can be planted against a wall, including a north wall, as a free–standing shrub or in a pot where it can be kept to a manageable size with judicious pruning.
Height and Spread in Maturity: 1.5m x 2.5m / 5ft x 8ft.
Special features: Deciduous, fragrant fruit.
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.

good review with good information, but I have pruned mine to ground level and it’s growing away well, but the branches are long and straightish and I’d like to know if it will eventually have it’s gnarled branches as it had before?
Yes, they can handle being severely pruned and the new growth should be very vigorous, so it will be back to its old shape really quickly
Hope this helps
