How to Sow
Plant shallot bulbs outside after all danger of heavy frost in the spring, for harvest in the fall. In the South, plant in the fall and leave them in the ground over the winter for spring harvest. Ten sets (2 cloves per set) will plant a 10' row. Make a shallow furrow 1-1 1/2" deep and lightly press cloves about 4" apart in rows 18" apart and cover with 1" of fine soil. Plant them 2" deep and 4" apart in rows 12’ apart. Bulbs should be planted with their pointed tops up. Keep soil evenly moist.
