What do you do with your fruit if you get any Dd?

Siris I make quince jelly, we use it instead of redcurrant , much nicer, wonderful with poultry, lamb etc and easy to make..also add it to beef stews!
Amy no fruit at all last year, was so disappointed..the year before had enough to make several jars of jelly...
Thanks Motty and Amy, and Lindak we have another shrub, but, it is taking ages to mature...
Siris in answer to your question, I would imagine.....

Dottie is it worth going round the flowers with a brush to fertilise them as there aren't any insects about. May or may not work.

Not a sign of life on mine yet. You lucky girl, they are so pretty.
