    I would like to grow an Escallonia hedge and wonder what sort of gap is required between plants also is anyone prepared to recommend a reliable source?

     By the way, why is Escallonia so expensive?

    Either it's slow or difficult to propagate; Also it appears to be only available pot grown so that pushes the cost up.

    Try https://www.ashridgetrees.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=escallonia although they are currently out of stock. I've used them in the past and the stock was good.
