Growing Stevia in North America

Memorial Day Weekend, the official start to summer.

Move Stevia seedlings out to the garden before or on Memorial Day throughout most of North America.  Select a sunny spot which receives more than 6 hours of direct sun per day.  Water well until established.  Allow 18 inches between the plants. 

Consider placing Stevia near the kitchen door to allow a quick step outside to snip sprigs to put in your hot tea in the morning and iced tea in the afternoon.
