    everyone, do not forget to let one or two khaennip plants go to seed and die naturally in your garden (If you have gardeners,don’t let them clean your plants away prematurely) the seed will scatter and next spring you can have fun spotting all your naturalised knaennip plants as they come up around May(once again, don’t let the gardeners near the place until you have found your seedlings!) One year my gardeners weed-whacked my entire Khaennip crop not once, but twice! I think they must have wondered what was that (possibly illegal?) smell …. If you must have things in neat rows, the seedlings are very easily transplanted when they have got their second pair of leaves. Dig them up on an overcast day after a good watering. Handle them only by the leaves so you do not damage the root and replant them in rows or blocks with 8-10″ between plants. Water well and they will recover and thrive all summer. I do this every year and never run out of plants.
