Very good on toast as well and adding to gravy. Makes a lovely tart with puff pastry, bacon and cheese as well. Enjoy

Gorgeous colour. They are indestructible I think. I’ve been trying to get rid of one of mine for 13 years and it still comes back! 😂

#quince phew another survivor of my hatchet style pruning! It was getting tangled so kill or cure!?

Hi Carole, good to know they are capable of surviving a good hacking. My other half did something similar for the same reasons, and I wasn't so convinced it would survive, but you never know! 🌱😄

@coneyBrae I'm not sure Monty would recommend it but I think some plant survive better than others, so far roses Rhododendrons, snowball trees and now quince are on my survival list 😂 good luck I'm sure it will be all the better for it!!

Was just given a cutting of one similar to this one, it's planted just cross fingers now and wait! 👍😃

This was really woody when we first inherited, it survived my kill or cure pruning style!
