Looking after your Stevia

Stevia rebaudiana is also known as Brazilian sugar plant, ‘sweet leaf’ and ‘sweet herb of Paraguay’. It has been prized by the South American Indians for hundreds of years as a natural sweetener and is now the basis for many natural sweetening products around the world.

Current UK legislation restricts the sale of this plant for use as an ornamental plant only but there is a lot of information online about ways this plant is used in the US, Canada, Switzerland and Australia and also how the leaves have been used for their concentrated sweetness throughout history.

To get the most from your Stevia plant do ensure it is well watered in the summer months, they can be quite thirsty. Pinching out the top leaves regularly will also help to keep its shape nice and bushy.

Stevia plants are not hardy, so best kept on a sunny windowsill or conservatory in the winter months. You will find that your stevia plant grows much more slowly in the winter and will need less water, so just aim to keep the top of the soil damp with occasional watering.
