How to grow
If you have rabbits in the vicinity be sure to protect the trees, as rabbits like to eat young hawthorn bark.
If planting 1-year bare-root hawthorns, cut the main stem at about 1.5m - 1.75m to stimulate side shoots the following year. Pot-grown trees have already had this formative training at the nursery and do not need pruning.
