Time it takes for shrubs to spread?
Hi folks If a shrub has an ultimate spread of say 2 meters, how long does it take to go from 'garden centre' size to anything approximating that size? I know there are probably a million factors but just roughly? Are we talking months or years? I'm trying to plan my shrub border for the front garden and picking out loads I like but curious to know how long things take to expand and start to fill in what will inevitably be a lot of bare space initially after planting? Thanks
