A few months ago, I brought a small Chinese quince into the garden.
The tree is relatively refined, but the branch structure has a ways to go. The best way to fix it is to cut the branches back to short stubs. Before doing this, however, I want to make sure the tree is healthy and growing well. For the time being, I’ll perform minor cutback by reducing the long shoots that lack ramification and then repot the tree. Once I have a better idea of what the roots look like, I’ll make a plan for the more invasive work.

The attractive container was made by Stephanie Walker. It’s my first pot of hers so I’ve enjoyed having it in the garden. Will have to keep my eyes out for more!
