I got one at tesco. it says back fill with peat and fertiliser. Why peat since it is not specifically acid lover

Would organic compost be ok

Left to itself, in a LARGE garden, it could well grow to 90 feet.
These things normally grow about one metre a year, once established. The previous owner of my house planted a hedge of them on my NW boundary. Some years ago I paid out loadsa money to have them removed because they were taking up far too much space, blocking out light and costing money every year to get trimmed, being too high for me to do it.
