Juliet dwarf cherry

Asked March 28, 2019, 5:13 AM EDT

I have two Juliet dwarf cherries, one is one year old and the other is two years old. Should they be pruned as bushes or trees? They are both sending up multiple shoots, and pictures that I have seen of them appear to be bush-shaped. Also, information on when and how to prune them (time of year, number of shoots to remove, etc.) would be helpful. Thank you for this and your past assistance. Ralph Rucinski
