    Is that what it is Andy, Euonymus elatus?  Are they seeds or seedlings?

    I would assume Andy is growing Bassia scoparia, that is what we used to call the burning bush, they don't grow very tall, wouldn't make a screen hedging I don't think. Could be wrong any other thoughts.

    They where a packet of seeds which i got at the garden centre photo on the packet looked like your photo nutcutlet.

    Have they sprouted yet Andy, if it's what nut says, I think you may be in for a long wait to get it to hedge standard. If you want to Google it, there is a site that'll tell you how to grow the seeds, it's called euonymus alatus, it's sounds very complicated.

    Well, I learnt something new there, Bassia scoparia is a tubleweed those plants you see rolling around on old movies.
