Bare root, pot grown ? .?

Sadly, I've inherited a row of leylandii but I've cut them down to 7ft and they're adequate for their purpose. I now need 3 or 4 more to fill a gap.
Root ball, bare root or pot grown ? I haven't a clue.



at this time of year I'd go for pot grown.

Couldn't you plant something else instead.?
How about Thuja. What do you think Seaburn?

Thanks S.G., a pot grown it is. And I'd love Thuja Pam, ( I've just found out what it is !) But I need something very quick growing as I've cut down a dead rowan and need to fill the gap asap that matches the others.
The Rowan was wrong anyway but I inherited it with the rest.
