Shallot Growing Guide
Shallots grow best in intermediate and long day areas.
Remove the plants from the box immediately. Do not put in soil or water before planting. Keep cool and dry until you can plant.
Preparing the Soil and Planting
Shallots are best grown in direct sunlight in well-drained soil that is rich in nutrients. Prepare soil for shallots just as onions.
Plant shallots 1″ to 1 1/2″ deep and 2″ apart. Water gently and thoroughly after planting.
Harvest and Storage
Shallots should be harvested 110-120 days once the tops have fallen over similar to onions.
Store shallots in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. Place them in mesh bags or netting to permit air flow. Shallots are known for their long shelf life. If stored properly, they can store up to 8 months..
