Accordingly, how do you propagate flowering quince?
To propagate flowering quince by cuttings, take 6- to 8-inch cuttings from last year's growth. Remove lower leaves, then dip the cuttings in water and rooting hormone. Plant your cuttings in a mix of sphagnum peat and perlite, and water well.
Also Know, how do you take care of a flowering quince? Give it part to full sun and feed once a year, after the flowers fade, with a slow-release fertilizer. Plant your flowering quince during the winter months, while it's dormant, in a hole twice as wide as the root ball. Place the plant no deeper in the ground than it was in its nursery pot.
In this manner, is Flowering quince edible?
Yes. The fruit on a flowering quince is edible, but the fruit on a flowering or Japanese quince is extremely tart. While you can use them to make jams and jellies, you'll get much better results from a quince that was bred to produce fruit.
