Shallots

Planting In the South, Shallots can be planted in January or February: in the North it is best to wait until March.

Shallots prefer well-drained soil with plenty of sun, but will do quite well in most spots in the garden. You can grow them at the edge of a flower bed or in any patch of ground that you have free.

When you buy shallots for planting, try to get bulbs that are firm: soft bulbs are more likely to rot in the ground.
