it is quince from the Japan.the flowers in spring are pink and the fruit when cooked as a jelly give a lovely scent and rose tint to it.

Any damage?

getting those plants in before the storm

I have just done what Monty told me to do,plant those wall flowers by the end of October.Just did it in time before the storm started.Hopefully I will have a carpet of wallflowers in Spring.I grew these from seed ,the packet cost 10 pence,in fact I bought a dozen of these selling off seeds dated 2 years out of date.I only planted 1 pkt and had so many seedlings come up well over 50 plants and still have some to plant out although its possibly to late.The best buy yet and when you think you can pay £1-50 for a dozen.I would thou like to plant a different variety too,as there is so many to choose from .So storm just starting ,shut the greenhouse batten down the hatches,bet the fences go first.

Grandpa had one just like it

it has to be in  a sheltered spot ,if its in  a pot it might be worth putting in shed as the frost will get in to the pot.

sounds like you need to wash the surrounding area in soapy water and clean the leaves with milk or water .Camillias like to be watered but not over (let it dry out) must be ericasuious(cant spell that but you get idea) soil and with plenty of ventillation  not central heating.

what utter confusion!
