    I wrote a hub about this if you want to read it. I'd include a link here, but I'm not sure that I am allowed to do it.  In most parts of the US you will need to grow this as an annual plant. I grew one in a pot last year and it did well. It even taste good eating in salads. Just pick off the young leaves and add it.

    My source of Stevia is www.richters,com. Their phone is 905-940-6677. Their fax is 905-640-6641. Richters is located in Goodwood, Ontario, LOC 1AO, Canada. They are herbal and vegetable suppliers of plants and seeds, of all kind, nearly.
    They will also give you instructions on how to grow the Stevia that you obtain from them. Good luck, my friend.
