    A contractor wants me to create a large hedge with southern wax myrtles. They grow 15ft tall and 15ft wide. How close should I plant them to create hedge? They are about 3ft tall and 2ft wide right now....thanks

    Two ways. 10ft appart or 5' appart and 2-3years into it you can remove every other one so that they will continue to grow together. I only offer the second one b/c most customers are too impatiant to wait three years for them to grow together that 10 feet.
