Fairly fast, very thorny even when pruning, Golden charmer seems to be better for berries, check out these

My pyracantha is still in the pot and I have noticed some leaves yellowing and falling off. Any ideas as to why

Have not seen it but initial response could be stress or neglect

Here is a pic. sorry for delay

Most of the leave that were yellow have fallen off. See the one out of focus and the one under it circled in red. Hard to see black spots appearing

As regards stress or neglect I bought it in September and asked if I should feed it if it was to be left in the pot for the moment. She said no but i gave it a little tomato feed and watered it too.

Maybe it is pot bound. If I were to plant it in the dormant time should i put fertiliser/compost

If its in a pot you can plant anytime so long as the ground is not frozen or we are not suffering from a drought. It looks fine to me in pic nothing to worry about, remember if a plant is evergreen that does not mean it will have the same leaves on it for the rest of its life, just take a look under leylandiii or laurel they keep replacing their leaves with new growth all the time.
If you are planting against a wall or building place it at an angle of 45 degrees and approx 45cms away when planting this encourages it to grow towards the wall and prevents it becoming top heavy and falling away from the wall in later years,
