how do i grow shallots?

Shallots grow from sets or bulbs and you’ll need to plant them 2-4 weeks before the last spring frost.  Plant your shallots 1 inch deep and 4-6 inches apart.  Keep them mulched and the container reservoir full to encourage strong growth.  Each of your sets will eventually divide and produce 8-10 new shallots.  If you plant shallots in the fall, they will produce large bulbs the following summer.

Companion Plants

Good to grow with most garden vegetables but keep away from peas or beans

harvesting

When the tops of your shallots are nearly dry, pull them up and dry the bulbs in a sunny, well ventilated area.  

Helpful Tips and Tricks

Shallots can store for months and if you mulch and protect them over winter you can harvest right from the garden all winter
