```Your solution does not check out

(x-2-Sqrt)(x-2+Sqrt)//ExpandAll

-6 - 4*x + x^2

(-b + Sqrt[b^2-4*a*c])/(2a) /. {a->1,b->2,c->10}

-1 + 3*I

Using Factor as previously posted by several posters:

Factor[x^2+2x+10,GaussianIntegers->True]

((1 - 3*I) + x)*((1 + 3*I) + x)

Or equating terms:

(x^2 + 2x + 10 == (x-a)(x-b))],
{a,b}]]

{((1 - 3*I) + x)*((1 + 3*I) + x)}
