Been wanting to grow my own shallots since moving across country to the mid-west. Came from California, and grew near everything there. Been waiting until available from Stark's - Been here 5 years, figure it's time. :)

I'm impressed
Panted 6in apart the 15 bulbs from a 1-lb order. ALL show healthy growth. They are 'spreaders'. Will plant 10in apart next year.
