Basic Shallot Growing Information
Planting Time: Plant in the fall or the spring, similar to garlic.
Sun Requirement: Shallots require full sun – the more the better! Therefore, avoid planting next to crops that might shade your shallots.
Soil Fertility: Adding compost or a balanced organic fertilizer is essential for growing healthy shallots, especially if your soil fertility is low. For the best growth and yield, shallots need fertilizer at planting time and additional side dressing throughout the growing season. Our Keene Garlic Fertilizer is great for all alliums!
Planting: Shallots grow best on raised beds or raised rows at least 4″ high. It is typical to plant shallots as early as 4 to 6 weeks before the last estimated spring frost. Plant each bulb 4-6 inches apart with pointy side up and root side down into fertilized soil. Apply mulch and then water.
