Basic Shallot Growing Info

Sun Requirement: Shallots require full sun – the more the better! Therefore, avoid planting next to crops that might shade your shallots.
Soil Fertility: Shallots prefer soil with a pH between 6.2 and 6.8. If your soil is too acidic, add ground limestone; if it is too alkaline, add peat moss. Adding compost or a balanced organic fertilizer is essential for growing healthy onions, especially if your soil fertility is low. For the best growth and yield, shallots need fertilizer at planting time and additional side dressing.
Planting: Shallots grow best on raised beds or raised rows at least 4″ high. Plant your shallots up to 4 to 6 weeks before the last estimated spring frost.

Fertilizer

Our Organic Garlic Fertilizer works great for shallots too! Its special formulation offers nutrients that all alliums need. Keene Garlic’s Fertilizer is rich in just the right blend of macro- & micro-nutrients, all from organic sources, for healthier, larger garlic, onion & shallot bulbs.
