Possible to deadhead sweet rocket?

I have some beautiful sweet rocket this year which I hope will spread as much as it wants for next year. Is it possible to deadhead to promote more flowers?S sources online say you can get it to reflower.
Thank you

    I cut some of it down and it does reflower.  I always leave a few stems to go to seed just in case.  I never have to replant it, if it's happy it self seeds.

    Oh that's good news. Do you just cut down to the first leaf where there are no flowers or a bit lower? I might try it on a few that are going over

    To be honest I just get the shears and give them a good haircut.
