Curry leaf tree

I have 2 curry leaf trees that were grown from cuttings 3 years ago, they have done very well this year in greenhouse and I will bring into the house to overwinter soon but what I’d like to know is how should I harvest the leaves? And from where? They drop most overwinter but I don’t know correct way to take leaves.
thankyou for any help

    The usual method would be to harvest the fresh leaves much as you would do with any scented leaf shrub.  
    You can either dry them or use fresh.
  • Thank you, yes I have some frozen also use fresh but wondered if I take the stems off if they will grow back next year I read on YouTube to cut the top right off and new shoots come but this was large trees in India so different growing conditions.
    i love curry leaves in my curries which I make often. I didn’t want to be left with a bare tree next year and few stems on top as it’s still really thin .
