One of the relatively new trees in my garden is a flowering quince ‘chojubai.’ Japanese As I bought the tree bare root Boon, I focused mainly on letting tree vigor gain. To this end, I have been watering, feeding and removing flowers and flower buds when I can.

Like many chojubai, mine blooms a little throughout the year, so the elimination of flowers a kind of part-time work. If I do not take off due time, small fruit appears.

can not answer one way or another as to whether the Japanese flowering quince fruit is culinary value. After a successful experience less unripe persimmon princess, I’m happy to let others lead the way.

As the tree has become quite strong, it is now a good time to reduce and wiring. It was an excellent time to begin removing the thorns. Spines are chojubai common feature, and removing them is a common practice.

As you can imagine, the elimination and reducing spinal take long. The work was nice because it forced me to examine each branch closely what helped me better understand how the tree had become its current form and what might be in store for your future.

Once I got to work, the wiring was relatively quick. When I was done, the tree began to suggest its future form.

A few days after the initial reduction, new shoots began to appear – the two leaf buds and blossoms. I will continue to remove flower buds and encourage all new growth as the main objective at this time is to increase the density of foliage. I will consider transplanting the tree in late fall or early spring.
