How to get Eugenia shrubs to grow together

Zone Southern California | interiors added on May 23, 2015 | Answered

We had about seven Eugenias planted 3'apart last spring and were hoping they would grow together to make a privacy screen. So far they are just growing taller and only slightly fuller. Should we top them to make them grow wider?

Do you know the variety you planted?
Proper planting is also important. Digging the hold wide enough for the roots to go out, not just down is important.

You should be able to prune the plants and take down the heights of the plants. Getting them to grow out 1 1/2 feet each side should happen over time with proper planting, soil conditions and fertilizing.

Here is a link to proper care needed.
