We cook with shallots every single day and planting the bare root plants is the way to go.

Growing beautifully!
The shallots are growing well, but I haven't harvested them yet, so I'll have a better idea of how happy I am with them once I've done that.

Easy grow product
I had a good year here in Maine with the Dutch Shallots. I grow melons up trellis's in raised beds. I planted the shallots in rows between each trellis. They grew very well and required very little care. Definitely would recommend.
