Japanese flowering quinces (Chaenomele­s) have long been spring favourites, but the bright pink and red shades can prove too showy for some gardens. C. speciosa ‘Geisha Girl’ (left) is altogether more subtle with double flowers in a deliciousl­y creamy apricot. It flowers later than other varieties and can be kept nice and compact, so is ideal for training against a wall or a trellis. Prune after flowering to keep it in trim. A three-litre pot costs £16.99 from Crocus (01344 578111; crocus.co.uk).
