"Hedges might take three to seven years to attain their desired size. You can buy semi-mature hedges which, although costly, will give an instant hedge. Semi-mature plants require extra care in planting and watering. Hedges might need shelter in their initial years on exposed sites."

"This varies according to what hedge is planted and how high is desired .the fastest growing is leylandi, which can grow up to 90cm a year but I would say depending on height you desire 3-7 years"
