Only by growing in a pot Alan.

however, you can prune back...a single stem, for example, when cut back will produce multiple stems.   Rub out shoots not required.

Yvie,,they usually self seed.  They tend to make clumps for a couple of years or more before "flowering".  I have had 2 or 3 grow here...they are smart enough to sneak in where they are not easily spotted 

I remove when I see them 

Sooty mould on Pieris

Aphids are the cause Meomye.  Their excretions create perfect comditions for that soooty mould.  Ideally remove by wiping/washing the mould and then apply insecticide during the growing season....a couple or so sprays.  Kill the aphids, prevent the mould.  

rose clear wont remove the mould
