Divide heads into individual bulblets just before planting. Push into the soil so 1/2 to 1 inch of soil covers the neck of the bulb. Plant about 4 inches apart in rows 1 foot apart. Each bulblet will multiply during the growing season to form a cluster of 6 or more new bulbs depending on soil fertility. Harvest when tops fall and begin to turn brown. Dry in an airy place. Shallots ship March 1st through May 15th. They will be shipped separately at the proper planting time for your area.
