So here is the Quince Corridor in flower.
Chardecoynes is the bastardisation of the French for quince which is coing. Almost the same pronounciation the ‘English’ coyne and the French coing. For those of you who speak French I guess it has a bit of duck in the pronounciation?
As my quinces are flowering, JT is very pleased with them. Tomorrow I’ll weed the beds around them and over the weekend I’ll weed the beds in the rest of the rooms and corridors. It’s a labour of love, but if I don’t get on with it JT will spray and I’ve lost a few trees because of drift. So no more poison!
I love the fact that this fruit tree is basically a rose, you can see it in the flower! Quince paste here we come……..
