Chaenomeles, or ornamental quince, are spiny-stemmed deciduous shrubs with small serrated leaves. Their colourful flower clusters emerge just before the leaves and continue to bloom for several months from late winter until March and April followed In late summer by fragrant fruits which can be eaten if cooked in preserves or compotes. Chaenomeles sup. 'Crimson and Gold' has vivid red flowers centred with prominent golden yellow anthers followed in late summer by yellow speckled fruit.

In borders, plant in moist, but well-drained soil, in a sunny spot for more profuse flowers and fruit. The brightly coloured flowers of Chaenomeles sup. 'Crimson and Gold' create dramatic impact and are particularly effective in a Japanese themed garden alongside evergreens and conifers and few other flowers. To maintain the form, cut back and shape after flowering, noting that the shrub will bear fewer fruit the autumn after pruning.

How you will receive your plants: 

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out. 

Can’t plant straight away? 

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist. 

Planting in the ground: 

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well. 

Planting in containers: 

Choose a pot with good drainage holes. Place stones or crocks (bits of broken pottery) at the bottom of the pot to stop the drainage holes clogging up. Use a good quality compost. Feed and water container-grown plants regularly. 

Water shrubs regularly in the first year after planting and in dry periods
