I have a Quince in my back garden, which was there when I moved in 6 years ago. It's planted on the fence line between mine and my neighbours garden. I have been pruning it back to keep my side tidy but the plant has grown in and out of the chicken wire fencing and is a bit of a tangle. I also have Ground Elder mixed in around the roots as well and I'm getting the Quince coming up in the lawn from the roots.
To tidy the whole thing up and help remove the Ground Elder can I prune the quince back right down to the base of the stems so I have the room to get the Elder out and start to have a bit more control of the Quince so I can train it along the fence line. Or will it just start sending up suckers all over the place.
