Hi! I would like to create a hedge from wintergem boxwoods. I have read conflicting information about the spacing when planting. Should they be spaced 18" apart or 36"? Thanks for the information!

If you plant them at 18 inches they will fill in faster. If you plant them at 36 inches they will take a good while to fill in. So its up to you which you prefer.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Would spacing them 18" now cause issues down the road with the roots? I'm looking for a hedge that is tight/without gaps. I don't mind waiting for them to grow together over time, if planted 36" apart....I just want to ensure that 36" would still form the hedge style I'm after.

Note: I've already planted 36" apart, but (of course) now I'm second guessing.
