Quince tree: has anyone out there got any advice on how to prune it? I have just picked the last of our quinces, and the tree is looking untidy and a little straggly, but when should I tidy it up? Should it be treated the same as apple & pear trees? I'm very happy with the current height (about 8'), it's on dwarf stock, so should I just tidy up the tatty bits? I should like it to thicken up a little so it presents a nice shape as well as fruit. It must be about 4-5 years old now.
