Shallots are members of the onion family and they produce small firm bulbs that store like garlic.

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.

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

Preparing and using

Store your shallots by hanging them in a cool place or clip them and store in mesh bags. Shallots are a bit sweeter than an onion, and are a real treat to cook with! 

    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.
