i have been considering planting stevia plants to harvest for the sweetness. i went online to find out plants versus seeds and proper planting time and where to buy the plants. i found site saying after danger of frost is past and usually wont winter outside then another site saying to plant in the fall. i would love to find info on the plant and all pertaining to it. just found out today that i am a diabetic so i am considering other sweetener sources, thank you
Stevia is just one of the green sugars. many report it to have an after taste bitterness, but off the top of my head I cannot remember the name of the other herb that is used. Your zone tells you how grateful your winters are for planting out dates. They cannot handle cold and prefer a milder climate. Kinda loke the difference between Rutherfordtown and Hickory for instance as to whether it will live thru winter, or needs to wait forr spring planting.
