Now they're worried about how to overwinter these frost-tender plants. The good news: Overwintering lemon grass is easy. The bad: You'll want to continue harvesting, and there won't be much to harvest unless you have a greenhouse or a warm, brightly lit room with full-spectrum grow lights. I started one of my lemon grass plants this spring from unrooted pieces I bought at an Asian market.

As far north as USDA plant hardiness zone 8, stevia plants can usually survive winter in the field. The tops might die back, but the roots can survive as long as the ground does not freeze. Mulch can help prevent frozen ground. I harvested my stevia plants more than a month ago, in September, leaving stubs of 4 to 5 inches in length. The plants have sprouted back somewhat, and we’ve had some frosts at night. The plants might survive in a sunny window. It’s also possible to overwinter stevia roots by packing them in moist soil or peat moss and placing them in a basement or root cellar where it stays cool, but not below freezing.
