Thread for the progress of my Japanese flowering quince clump. Started from nursery material in November 2020. I’m unsure of the flower colour, it was marked as “pink or white” at the nursery. Also unsure of the cultivar, also just marked as “chaenomeles”

As purchased

After the initial cut back and styling

A few months later

I repotted 2 weeks ago. Buds are started to move and open so I gave it a styling yesterday.

After the work. I cut back most of the elongated shoots and applied some more wire in places

Looks great. And it looks like a quince - not like a quince trying to be something else! :)

Looking forward to seeing this with flowers!

Thanks for posting, super helpful. I have one I'm putting back in a grow pot next year to do something similar, glad to see an example of it in progress, keep us updated!

I’ll be sure to post updates through the season, I’m really impressed with how it’s developed in 9 months. I’ve learnt a lot about developing deciduous since I started it so I’ll be a lot more proactive with it’s developed this season
