Griselinia hedge - mixed sizes

I have just planted a 12m griselinia hedge, however due to cost saving and using various sources, I have use a mixture of 2.5ft, 3ft and 4 ft plants. Would this be a problem or should I have been consistent with the sizes? I have distributed them evenly rather thiam using the larger ones at one and smaller at the other.

hope I haven’t made a mistake??

    I'd have bought them all at 2 or 3 feet. Much easier to establish  :)
    It won't make any difference, but you may find the bigger ones struggle more than the small ones, and you'd be better cutting them back a bit. 
    Wait until spring and see how they go. Your own climate and conditions will dictate how well they grow too.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • Yeah I’m hoping the smaller ones will compete and catch up with the bigger ones if they’re slower growing, I’ll likely give the bigger ones a heavier cut in spring to even it out a bit.
