This plant has a little story: it was given to me, many years ago, by my grandfather. It never did very well but I kept trying. Four years ago, we bought the house belonging to my late grandfather and this came back with me to the garden it originated. There is no other quince here now so I am not sure how my grandfather came to have it. It now enjoys and flowers climbing up against a southerly wall in between grapevine and espalier apples :-)
