Time for a update. Been here for 5 years now so the garden is no longer brand new. It’s still windy, it’s still stony and I still have so many plans.

Chaenomeles japonica

I think it’s an early flowerer Elaine, it’s actually later this year than last! @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

No it was new last March. I’ve looked back to when I bought it and it was in flower then so hopefully there’s time yet 🤔👍

Ah Jane, mine was slow after planting. Think it’s been in for 5 years and I think it only really took of properly last year - and then it was with a vengeance. Flowered like mad for months! @elly

The #japanesequince has got to be my #bestwinter2018 so far. It’s never been better, it’s flowering abundantly and there’s a mass of buds still to come #chaenomeles #wintercolour

The Japanese Qince is playing the staring role in the garden right now. This is it’s best year since I planted it. #chaenomeles #japanesequince #wintercolour

Oh I do hope so. I’m afraid mine was in the garden when I moved in so I don’t know how old they have to be before they fruit. Hopefully 3 years 😉😂

Chaenomeles Not the best photo but the thorns are a bit of an obstacle to getting up close! #wintercolour #chaenomeles
