Thank you spot on
sll my shrubs may be to close together worried about moving them now as they are established
What else do you have in beside it James? Escallonia can be pruned but ideally you want to give shrubs enough room to mature, so that you're not constantly making them fit a space. It's better for the health of the plants. Often, plants will grow bigger than the books suggest too - it depends on yourown conditions and climate, so it's not always simple!
Having said that, you can move shrubs, but it depends what they are and what room you have elsewhere for them.
I have loads of room in the beds but only if I moved a lot about and if I move I might not get flowers I think you looked at my 3 pictures there all close together I think the 3 shrubs I put on here get like 1.5 meter wide cam you see my posts fairy girl

Apologies James - but I can't remember which shrubs you have!
If you've given the shrubs plenty of room, there shouldn't a problem, but you might need to resort to doing more pruning than you want. If a shrub hasn't been in the ground long, it's not too hard to move them if you prepare properly
they have been in about ten months
They probably wouldn't be too difficult to move if they've only been in that length of time.
Did u get message on shrubs I got
Sorry James - I'm not good at looking at PMs
Looked at them now - those can all get to a reasonable size, epsecially the Choisya ternata - but if you think there isn't enough room at the distances you've planted, you can always move them. They can all be pruned to keep them smaller, but it's really a judgement you have to make yourself. It's certainly easier to move them when they're smaller.
Do you have a picture of all of them in situ so that we can see how they look just now?
