I just bought 2 packs of shallots (Shallots Dutch Yellow) from the local nursery.  But I cannot remember whether they have cloves like garlic.  Here is one I bought.  Do I divide this into cloves or just plant the whole thing.  I have done a lot of googling and can find good growing suggestions etc, but nothing about whether this set is divided into cloves before planting.   thinking  thinking

Yes, you plant the whole thing.  The shallot will grow babies around it, at least 4, sometimes 5 about an inch from the one you planted.

Regarding shallots.
Last Oct. I planted a bunch along with some garlic.
With the extreme cold we have had, and for so long I'm wondering is those shallots survived.
Their planted real close to the surface.
I have more on order

I plant my shallots in spring and they do great. Jimmy, keep us informed about how your autumn planted shallots are doing. I hope they make it.

Post  jimmy cee 4/4/2014, 5:05 pm

Last fall I planted 4 dozen shallots, surprisingly they came through our freezing winter unscathed.
Now some are still in the ground and some are about 1/3rd up out of the MM.
These are seemingly nicely rooted, should I cover the exposed with MM or just let them be ?

Just leave them be. Shallots are not grown underground.

Garlic, shallots and 3 different onions are planted in this mess.
It all was doing nicely till a storm last night, I removed al scapes yesterday and were they ever delicious.
I dedicated an entire 4x10 bed to them this year.Friday's Rookie Topic VI:  SHALLOTS - Page 3 Fence_10

Needed some garlic for dinner and didn't want to drive to the store.  Pulled up 1 garlic and it doesn't look too bad. Decided to see what the shallots looked like.  Small.  Can I save these little ones and replant in the fall?

This is what the bed looks like.  Believe I have another month before all is ready.

Kay - I planted my garlic and shallots 3/2/14.  Do you plant yours in the fall.  My garlic leaves browned and fell over and I pulled the garlic on 6/1/14.  The bulbs were puny.  My shallots are still going but getting brown on the tips.  But the individual bulbs of the shallots do not look anywhere near as large as the shallots I planted.
The shallots are about the size of your shallots in this picture.

This is normal. Shallots are biennial. The daughter bulbs next year should be larger.

This picture was taken May 2012.  I planted the garlic and shallots from this crop in Oct of 2012 and got a indifferent crop in 2013.  I planted the 2013 crop in Nov and got small garlic again this month.  Shallots are still in the ground but the tips are turning brown.  All years I put some bone meal on the bed in the spring to encourage root growth.  We shall see.

Shallots and bunching onions are different from each other. Shallots are small, mild onions that are dry.

With the gardener's permission, I wanted to share these photos. She is in central Texas so dates may be different depending on the grow Region or Zone. She spread them on racks in the garage for a couple of weeks for curing. Some of the 5-quart harvest will be diced and dehydrated. The rest will go into a mesh bag for storage.

I have never grown shallots nor cooked with them. But, I thought her photos and explanations were worth sharing.

I used to grow shallots.  But I never found a variety that would work well in Georgia.
