  • Yellow Shallot 'Golden Gourmet' can be planted in rows during the spring when there is no more frost. The distance between rows is about 35 cm. The distance between the shallots is about 15 cm. Plant the shallots in the ground just below ground level. Young shallots may go through shooting. If the weather is wet it is best to leave until later. Shallots grow best under complete sunshine.

  • Care
  • Shallots are easy-to-grow vegetables and ideal for any new gardener. Mix some garden fertilizer into the ground preferably in the winter: about 50 grams per square metre. Sprinkle 40 grams of potassium per square meter. Make sure that after planting you keep the area free from weeds. Provide extra water during dry periods so that the onions develop well. In very wet summers, you can harvest a few weeks earlier.
    Harvesting shallots
    Between July and August, the foliage begins to brown. When about half the foliage has turned brown, you can lift all the shallots out of the ground. Hang them in bunches to dry. Shallots can be kept long when stored in a cool and dry area.
