old way.. take a barrel filled with water, throw your seed pod (horse apples) into the water and let them set over the winter.( away from the house, they will sour first as they rot) very small seeds will fall to bottom of barrel. and the rest will float . to plant, use a plow and dig a fuurow 4-5 inches deep, spread the seed by hand in a row in furrow and cover lightly. Plant them thick! not all will grow and its hard to go back and replant when you fighting the thorns. keep watered well for the first two or three years. osage orange will grow either as a bush, or a tree. how you thin your plants decides this. for a actual hedge thin to no more than 18" or so since crowding makes it grow as a bush. as tree/hedge grows entertwine branches,to make your barrier.start right at ground level if you are attemting to hold very small animals or hogs and the like. two rows makes a fence even tighter. a little fact, osage orange was one of the highest paying crops grown in the US for very many years and its still extremly expensive to buy seed. its expensive to make a fence this way, since it requires a lot of upkeep to keep it under control so barbed wire replaced it almost everywhere. but a hedge made this way and properly maintained can last generations. hope this helps.
