Description:

Plant has thorns and larger leaves with small ones on stem in between. Fruit attach directly to stem in pairs - most unusual to me. Found growing under a leylandii. Thought they were apples at first but fruits are hard and full of seeds. No idea what it is!

Japanese quince

Wow! That was quick. Thanks for that. Is it a common garden shrub? I'll investigate further.

quite common

Lovely flowers in the spring which bee's like,can be trained on a wall too.
