Spruces can shed their needles in spring, although not usually all at once. If you are getting fresh green growth at the same time it should be fine.

It could be either mice or rabbits.

Depends on varieties - if they're indoors, the palms' leaves could be finding the air too hot and dry.

The shrivelled leaves might be due to frost, or to strong winds. As long as only a few leaves shrivel it will recover.

You can certainly make a hedge of it if you want to, although you may find that, in time, you will have a shell of leaves and a fairly empty middle. The only thing I'd say is that it would be best pruned by hand to keep a good shape rather than using a hedge trimmer.

Probably best in pots as they'll germinate faster than outdoors.

I agree with Geoff - it's still too early. Not just in terms of cold, but the current wet spell - heavy rain will over-saturate them and beat down the plants.
