    what fruits can I plant as a "hedge"?

    I've a four-foot deep privet hedge that needs replacing. I'd like to plant fruit bushes (gooseberries, blackcurrant etc) or trees (like espalliered apple trees, maybe?) It gets the sun from early morning till about 4 o'clock in the afternoon

    I use Bluberries as a hedge. I had fruit within a few months too. They have the morning sun and evening shade, and seem to require little care.

    Without knowing what zone you're in, it's hard to be much help but I've had great success using kumquats as an easily maintainable hedge. I'm in central CA so we have a pretty mediterranean climate year-round and the soil is more on the acidic side. As a good rule of thumb, if oranges or other citrus grow well in your area, kumquats should do well also. Hope this helps and good luck!

    To create hedge it is necessary to know the soil condition, the climatic condition and testing experiment, only then the actual type of plant could be ascertained for hedge.
