These pretty flowering shrubs (Chaenomeles × superb) are prized for their pretty cup like flowers that brighten the dead of winter. They are low growing deciduous plants but completely hardy so most at home in the garden.

You can keep it in the pot for the first year if you prefer or plant it out any time the ground is not actually frozen. Dig a nice big hole when you do this and as you would do with any new planting add some rich compost to the hole to get it settled in. Keep well watered, whilst it is establishing or whilst in a pot and plant in full sun or part shade.

The fruits of the quince are edible but they are really grown for the flowers. The fruit can be used for jellies and preserves though in the same way you might use a crab apple.
