How to Plant and Care for Shallots

  • Choose and open sunny site preferably with some shelter from strong winds
  • Prepare the soil and remove any weeds
  • Remove any long 'tails'
  • Push bulbs into soil 1cm deep and leave 30-40cm (12-16in) between rows
  • Plant 15 cm (6in) between shallot leaving the tips protruding above the soil so that the birds are less likely topull them out
  • Water the soil if necessary until the shallots are established
  • On heavy soils or sites prone to waterlogging, plant in a raised bed

Harvesting Shallots

  • Lift when foliage turns yellow
  • Allow to dry out before storing in a frost free place
