Pruning Prunus lusitanica

Question from karen mcclure

Hi there, please can you give me advice on pruning this plant - I want it for the back of a border and whilst it has plenty of space at the moment, I would like to know if I can prune it at a later date to keep it shrubby and bushy to avoid it getting too tall once it has established.
Any tips gratefully received
Many thanks

Prunus lusitanica

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

This is often used as a hedging plant and is more tolerant of chalk than other Prunus species. It is often dense enough to be used as a nesting site by birds like the song thrush and its flowers offer nectar and pollen to bees.
