Soil: Very adaptable to a wide range of soils. Highly tolerant of clay. Established plants easily withstand dry conditions.
Light: Sun to partial shade
Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: Little needed. If you want plants to grow more quickly, apply a granular rose fertilizer in early spring.
Winterizing: No specific care needed. Branches may be clipped and brought indoor for winter blooms.
Maintenance & pruning: Regular pruning is not required. However, if you wish to prune, do so immediately after flowering in spring. Note that quince flower mostly on two-year-old wood, so allow growth to develop for best bloom. Some rebloom in late summer/fall is common - consider it a bonus!
