CULTURE:Shallot bulbs prefer well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter and lots of sun. More than one clove can often times be contained in a papery wrapper. These cloves can be broken apart and planted individually. Space cloves 6-8 inches apart in rows 12 inches apart. Plant the root ends down and cover with 1/2 inch of soil. Side dress plants with aged compost in the spring. Bulbs are ready to harvest when leaves have turned yellow and fall over. Standard yield for shallots is about 4-5 times the amount planted.

Bulbs per pound: Approximately 15-30 unless otherwise noted.

So far, I am impressed! I planted these immediately upon arrival. They took a while to "sprout", but they are doing just fine. I planted them in a raised bed and I have a video on You Tube showing when I planted them. You can check it out at Rainbow Gardens, titled: Yay! My bulbs arrived in the mail
