Where do you buy the stevia plant? I've never seen them in the garden centers near me. Also, can you grow it inside?

I found it at a local nursery. Call your local nurseries and ask about them. Make sure they were organically grown! I got this recipe from that nursery and this is the first season I'm trying it so I'm not sure if it will last inside but I intend to try ( like I do with my other potted herbs- rosemary, Thyme, basil, oregano and even lavender.)

Thanks. I will go to a nursery and ask. I have also seen seeds on eBay. I'll make sure they are organically grown.

Hi Donna!

I found the stevia plant. Do you think this freezes well?

Would love to have some during the winter if I can't grow the plant inside.

Does straight Stevia from the plant taste like black licorice?
