If you want them fairly soon, it may be better to buy them, bare rooted. They are on sale now, or in Dec. They are very cheap if you look on the net.
I planted a row of these in Jan 2012 they are 4ft tall now and as wide, thats on tough ground with no feeding,just needed quick hedge cover.
Depends how quick you need them, they will root easily, especially from layering, but do take a while to get established roots on, big enough for a hedge.
