    To be honest @andrew.twigg - once they establish, the small ones will quickly catch up and usually become better specimens.  :)
    If you don't have high rainfall, like Lyn and I have, the most important thing is not to let them dry out. Planting in autumn helps that though. A good mulch after planting will also be beneficial.
    I've used Hopes Grove Nursery for hedges in the past, and always found them good.

    This the company I used, I felt that if they had been grown in Scotland they would be hardened to all weather.  I didn’t lose one.  Plant about 2ft apart.

    I've got two separate shrubs here -  looking rather attractive just now - full of big glossy berries  :)

    Unfortunately mine has never had flowers, undergardener cuts it back about three times a year.
