Shallot Seed Planting Information:

Shallots are very close to garlic and are very easy to grow. Shallots are basically a very mild garlic. Like garlic, they reproduce by bulb division underground. The green tops grow about 10" tall and can be used like green onions. The seeds should be planted indoors 6 to 8 weeks before ground can be worked. You can also plant seeds directly in the garden. Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked. In the South, you can also plant them in the fall for a winter harvest. Shallots stop growing just past mid-summer, so plant them in early spring or fall. Keep free from weeds. Plants can grow 8 to 12" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep seedlings and transplants consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every 2 weeks.

Harvest Tips:

Wait until the leaves die off before harvesting. Then spread bulbs on ground for 3 to 5 days to cure.
