Hello I am looking for a few different types of adult fruiting tree cuttings that have produced fruit before please. I am happy to swap with cuttings from some…
Chaenomeles genus (Quince). This genus consists of deciduous thorny spring-flowering shrubs. The flowers will bloom in various colours. The leaves are simple and finely toothed.
Deciduous, Shrubs or Trees
China and Japan
Grown for their showy flowers and fragrant fruits, used for preserves.
They are fully hardy and will prefer a sunny position and well drained soil. On wall-trained shrubs cut back side-shoots after flowering to 2 or 3 buds and shorten shoots growing away from wall during growing season.
You can propagate the species by softwood or greenwood cuttings or by suckering in the summer or by seed in the autumn, and the cultivars by cuttings only in the summer.
Scale insects and aphids. Fireblight and chlorosis, on chalk soils, are common problems.
