What is a 'pro ado' product?  Do you mean Provado which most gardeners are avoiding because of the damage it causes to bees?

Yes, I grew them about 15 years ago.  I think you need to buy some frozen ones and see if you like them before you devote space, time and energy in growing the things.

If you want to be a good neighbour, enough room to get behind the hedge and trim it.

I agree with Nutcutlet; why would you even buy a chemical that is harmful to the environment?  And what are you spraying against?
