Tree following May 2019 - the two quinces blossom

The last four weeks have seen a heatwave and near frost.  The quince trees are understandably confused but, bless their little cotton socks, still blossoming well.
When I say blossoming well, they have just passed the moment of peak blossom.  This makes me happy to see them so covered in flowers.
Better still, Quince Minor, who for the last two years has been a bit (lot) blighty, this year is looking healthy and happy and dare I say, sporting a quincelet or two already.
It is just very exciting.
Quince Major is bedecked, absolutely bedecked with blossom.  It is like it has now been in the ground long enough to have settled in and become a proper tree.
There are also small quincelets appearing.
Enough to make me hope for a good number this year.....



we have had recent cold nights and I worry that the quincelets will fall off one by one like heavy rain.

Oh well, worrying never changed anything, time alone will tell.

  1. It is supposed to warm up from Sunday, so hopefully this will help your quincelets

  2. Plenty of pretty flowers. Hope luck will be with you and they will turn into plenty of fruits.

  3. Looking good - and now you have been doing this for so many years I can really see them developing into full-blown trees.
    May the weather be kind :)
