Seeds are then equally mixed with fine sand and spread in prepared soil. Harvesting usually happens during October-November or April-May after three years from planting.
Leaves are then cut close to the ground and dried in shades. dried leaves are separated by careful beating and processed for making powder. Deep green leaves import a vibrant deep green color while old ones may be slightly brown.
