The manufactures are either importing these plants from the abroad sources or importing the back-potencies for manufacturing the drugs in their units. Due to the non-availability of raw material for manufacturing the drugs, the possibilities of uses of adulterant or substandard raw material are high. The produce of garden is used to laying down quality standards of homoeopathic drugs to check the uses of adulterant or substandard botanical source. The produce of herbal garden is also preserve in the museum reference purposes. Seeds produced from herbal garden are also preserved in the Germ Plasm for further uses.
