Last fall I potted a Japanese Quince cutting into the front yard, hoping it will grow faster. Unfortunately, a rabid rabbit keep nibbling at it. As a result, it didn’t have much of a chance to grow last year. I was somewhat surprised that it survived the winter given the weakened state it was in. This year I would give it some protection, and pot it back into a pot, such that it can remain in the safety of my backyard.
It still haven’t grown as much as last year, but hopefully as the weather gets warmer, it’ll take off.
