To prune sprawling plants quickly, try this: Double up garden twine and wrap it around the plant's midsection. Thread the cut ends of the twine through the looped end; pull taut. All the stems will gather at the top of the plant, requiring fewer cuts.

This looks clever. I'll try when I prune this winter:)
