Not sure about hawthorn as topiary.  It is a naturally wild thinker!  

I grew a trained pyracantha for several Fairy said, it can look superb.

Sarah, the flowering time is set.  Nothing you can do about that.

cut it back now right down to the ground.  Be aware of any creatures hiding in there.  Comb out dead stuff or,,if you want to,,just leave it for insects, etc. over winter

I don't like the burning option.  a sharp pair of shears is quicker and better.

Flumpy, yes I used my new brush this morning.  A few tears of course.  It will take time

Daffy, most garden centres will have them.  possibly a two-edged sword because they will be stacked with christmas stuff but there may be some tucked away in a clearance bay

however, they are a popular item and sure to be in stock in spring.  Or buy online.

take the trouble to get some goodness in at planting time.  It will pay dividends
