Hi all,
I have a north-facing wall which I would like to cover. I understand that a flowering quince would be hardy enough to survive in these conditions. I do however have a young child so can anyone tell me whether there is a thornless variety?

Hi Holly, We've spoken to our client Monkton Elm Garden & Pet Centre and this is what they say, I hope it helps:

There are Chaenomeles, which are thornless, look out for the Storm range, colours include scarlet, pink and orange. Jasminum nudiflorum is an excellent choice of climber for a north wall with yellow star flowers in winter.

If you need any further advice, please contact the garden centre on 01823 412381.
