I you have a look around some hawthorn, you might find a vole stash which has started growing. I found a lot of seedlings this way, and then potted them on for a year. Whips will be quicker than cuttings or seed.
If you know where you want the hedge, you could just line out the seed there. It will germinate in the spring.
