Why to plant flowering quince

Planting flowering quince in your garden is a great way to add vibrant color early in the year.

When to plant

The best time to plant a flowering quince is in late fall or winter while the plant is dormant. An early winter planting will likely reward you with a display of flowers in the first season.

Where to plant

Plant flowering quince in full sun to get the best display of blossoms. However, it can also grow in partial shade.

How to plant flowering quince

Prepare a planting hole twice the size of the root ball of the potted plant. If you have heavy clay soil, add in compost to improve drainage around the roots.


In the first year after transplanting, give the plant regular water during dry weather to help it establish a healthy root system. After that, water when the top inch of soil dries out.
