Japanese Quince PlantThese hardy deciduous Japanese quince (chaenomeles) will add a splash of welcome colour to the garden in early spring, and come back for a repeat performance year after year.
I sent the plant to my sister as a gift for Mother’s Day. Our mother, who is no longer with us, loved Japanese Quince. My sister loved it. The plant was very healthy with tight buds, she said. I told her about Plants4Presents. I had used them before to send a gift to a friend. Very good quality plants, delivered with care, on time!
Beautiful plant! Love the jug it came in & very healthy on arrival!
I have used plants for presents many times since discovering them a couple of years ago i am always very happy with the quality of the plants and the customer service

These hardy deciduous flowering shrubs (Chaenomeles) will add a welcome splash of colour to the garden during the darkest months and come back for a repeat performance year after year.
Your Japanese Quince is an outdoor plant and will be happiest planted out in the garden, however can be kept in a pot for the first year if you prefer.
Your Quince can be planted out any time the ground is not actually frozen, choose somewhere either in full sun or partial shade. Dig a nice big hole when you do this and, as you would with any new planting, add some rich compost to the hole to get it settled in.
Make sure to keep your plant well-watered whilst it is establishing or whilst in a pot.
Japanese Quinces don’t follow a strict flowering pattern and will often bud before their leaves appear. They are also deciduous so don’t be alarmed when they lose their leaves in the winter.
If keeping your plant in a pot be especially careful not to allow it to dry out in the spring/summer. If your plant seems to be suffering in a pot, it could benefit from being planted out in the ground as soon as convenient.
