Pear tree with quince as pollinator?

Thanks for the advice, I'll have a look at a couple of cordons and see if I can squeeze them in, lots of nice blossom and hopefully a few pears can' t be bad!

Cheers Janet.

hi, thanks for the replies, basically I have a very small garden with a large wall and I hoped I would get away with planting one large trained tree. I already have a quice growing along my fence and couldn't find anything about cross polination though I know it is used as a root stock. I suspect it isn't going to work. I'll have a look at the RHS website as suggested. thanks for your help.
