Question about Craftsman 22" Gas Hedge Trimmer
You will see a spark jump from the plug body to ground if it isn't tightly grounded to the engine. However a spark should also jump the gap in the plug at the same time. It can be difficult to check a plug this way because it tends to bounce around the place when pull starting the engine. You could try getting a bit of wire and clipping on end to the exhaust or fin on the engine with a crocodile clip, clothes peg or vice grips. The other end of the wire could be wrapped around the threads of the plug and held with a clip.

Tips for a great answer:
You need to make sure you have spark. Remove plug,
connect spark plug wire, hold plug to motor to make ground. Pull recoil and
take note if you have a blue spark on the electrode of the spark plug. If you
do, then it is a fuel issue, most likely gummed up the carb. Try carb cleaner
spray and fresh gas.
