Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

Arrives as young plant
Great Gardens excellent to work with. Plants are thriving and the couple that weren’t were promptly replaced.
For what I was charged the plants were too small. I should have gone to a retail nursery and paid a bit more for a larger specimen.
I'm sorry you are not satisfied with your plants! We do note that all of our plants are young on each product page and on our plant sizes page (found here).

We ordered the small shrubs to save money knowing it could be a few years before they grew to their expected size. They were packaged very nicely and are quite healthy. We planted right away after receiving them and are very pleased with how well they are doing.
Plants are doing great
3 of the 4 holly bushes I bought died. I emailed customer service about 3 weeks ago and never had a response
