Stevia Seeds

Part of the James Wong Homegrown Revolution Range.

Ornamental herb. Grows well in pots on your patio. PLEASE NOTE: Plant not approved for human consumption.

The Stevia plant has been grown and prized in South America for many centuries as the native Indians recognised and used the sweet properties of these plants leaves. The food sweetening potential of Stevia has now been recognised in many countries around the world and commercial processing techniques have been developed to extract the sweetness and add this to other ingredients to produce low sugar foods and artificial sweetening tablets. In the US, Canada, Japan and Switzerland among other countries, the legislation around the sale of these plants is different to in the UK. Here we are governed by strict legislation that does not permit the sale of this plant for any use other than its ornamental qualities. The plant has hairy green foliage and insignificant small white flowers, growing to around 25-35cm (10-14") in height, providing the leaves are not picked to trim the plant. Sow: March-July. Flowers: September-October. Height: 50cm.

Full growing instructions given on packet.
Sow your seeds in a propagator (or pot covered with a piece of glass) using good quality, moist compost and place on a light, warm windowsill. Be careful not to over water. When small shoots appear - remove glass or vent your propagator to encourage growth. When your seedlings are 3cm (1¼") high transfer them to larger individual 7cm (2¾") pots and continue to grow on the windowsill. Plant out in a sunny, sheltered position when all risk of frost has past. Pinch out the growing tips to encourage bushy growth.
