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.

Shallots are undemanding and require only occasional watering during particularly dry  periods. However, rows should be weeded regularly. Harvest Shallots in August, a week or two after the leaves begin to turn yellow.
