Planting a privet hedge
I just ordered privet shrubs from the American Arbor Day Foundation. I want to plant a privacy shrub to run the length of my property. I've read conflicting information on the width that privet will grow. Can anyone who has planted a hedge tell me how far apart to place them? I guess I should have asked this question before ordering 40, but I got so excited when I saw the price (1.45 each, with membership) that I couldn't help myself. Also, just how much shade can they take? The way I'd like to position them, they would be in a pretty shady area, but I could move them closer to the road were there's more sun if necessary.
