It is deliciously sweet - really very good indeed - and we've not started on the crumble yet - but we might need some for a niblet before bedtime

I'm not desperately keen on coconut Philippa, but I love dark chocolate and marzipan  

The almond ones sound fab -  I don't have a Nut allergy - well, not unless she's in a really bad mood 

Quince

Go on Duncan, have one of each - grow a proper fruiting quince in a huge pot, and a chaenomoles up against a wall or a fence 

This wonderful nursery http://www.readsnursery.co.uk/categories/Quince-and-Medlar-Trees/ to whom I am not related in any way, are really helpful and will answer queries by email, so I suggest you ask them about buying and growing a quince in a pot. 

No need for moss killer.

Hi Pauline

Are you thinking of growing something the street-side of the hedge or the side facing your home?

Which way does the house face and what sort of soil do you have in the garden.  Also, how high is the hedge?

Quince

Are we talking about the Cydonia quince, grown for its large pear shaped fruits, or are we talking about Chaenomoles, sometimes known as the Japanese Quince, grown for it's attractive flowers (although it does also have fruit which can be used as quinces)?
