Cultivation Advice Shallots Sets Golden Gourmet

  • Soil is best prepared the previous season with organic matter.  Do not plant on a freshly manured bed.
  • Try to avoid planting in the same place as onions from the previous year.
  • Sow mid Feb to Late Mar usually 2 weeks before onion sets.
  • Plant like small bulbs so that the tips are just showing above the soil 15-20 cm apart with 20 cm between rows.
  • Protect during early growth if you have squirrels or pigeons in the area.
  • Keep weed free and water during dry periods.

(Please note sets are supplied by packaged weight and exact counts per packet / net will vary with the mixed sizes of the sets.)

(If not planted immediately, open bag and spread somewhere cool and dry to prevent the sets sweating and rotting)
