I plan to plant a few copper beeches to form an attractive hedge, but my husband thinks they'll be slow-growing. How long is it likely to be before they reach 10 feet?

Its purpose is to enhance the end of the garden, planting in front of snowbush and brambles which have been cut back. We live in Hertfordshire; soil is alkaline/neutral.



4 to 5 years given the right treatment. Do not overfeed with nitrogen, they may revert to green.
