sets of shallots february Shallots
These round ones are Sante, the elongated ones are Longor. I usually buy some and use some from the year before.They like a neutral PH soil.

 shallots growing well february Tips:
Water during very dry spells
carefully scrape soil away from base in July so all but roots open to the air
ready to harvest when they come away, fully dry out in the sun before storing
a good size february Often more than these are produced, anything up to 10 or even twelve per set.
