Shallots & Grow Bag
If your looking to grow your own shallots but have limited space these attractive grow bags are a great idea.
This fantastic grow bag comes complete with 5 red shallots. All you need is to just add compost.
All you need is 40 litres of multi-purpose compost per bag (not included).
Choose a sheltered location with good drainage.
Fill the bag with compost and water so that the compost is moist.
Plant the shallots 3cm (1″) deep and 12cm (5″) apart. Check the shallots every few days and re-plant any that have been disturbed by birds etc. until growth starts.
Keep the soil moist during the growing period.
In late summer/early autumn the leaves will start to die down.
This means they are about ready to harvest. Bend the leaves over and a few days later, ease the shallots out of the compost. A few days later again, lift them clear of the soil and leave on the surface to ripen. When dry, rub off loose skins and roots. Store in a cool, dry and frost free place in trays.
PACK INCLUDES 1 GROW BAG & 5 RED SHALLOTS
