Spacing between plants to create informal hedge

I planted a snow maiden hedge in November, plants are still pretty small but I spaced them 60cm apart on the advice of the nursery. Pruning will help.

It's possible that there's a roof beam in the way of the fitting. We had to offset a heat lamp in the ensuite because of a roof beam. Grr.
