You can prune it fairly easily. Remove the blooms. Trim to prevent it from growing too tall. Periodically take the tops off the plant and cut about a 1/2 inch off or pluck the leaves.

Its usually only a 2 yr Plant anyway. 2nd year it sets seeds. First year is the year to use as culinary cuttings. After that it gets more bitter.

I do grow mine more for the butterflies and they share with me. Chuckl

I grow mine in a raised planter. I always get at least three seasons out of it as long as I keep it pruned.
