How to Grow
Plant shallots in rows in any firm, well drained soil in full sun. Prepare the planting area several weeks in advance by incorporating some well rotted garden compost to improve drainage and soil fertility. Avoid planting shallots on freshly manured soil. On particularly wet ground, try growing shallots in raised beds. When growing shallots from sets, plant the bulbs so that the tip of bulb is just protruding through the soil surface. Leave a space of 18cm (7") between each bulb, and 30cm (12") between each row.
More Info
Shallots are undemanding and require only occasional watering during particularly dry periods. However, rows should be weeded regularly. Harvest spring planted Shallots in August, a week or two after the leaves begin to turn yellow. Choose a dry day to loosen them from the ground with a fork. Leave them in their clumps on the soil surface for a day or two until they have fully dried in the sun. Once dry, remove the top foliage and store them in a well ventilated, dry position. There is no need to break rings of shallots apart until you need to use them. Shallots store exceptionally well and can often be stored in good condition for 6 months or more.
