Jermor Shallots are a tempting copper coloured shallot with a rosy flesh. Ideal for over winter planting for an early harvest.

Shallots require a deeply cultivated and well-drained soil.

Shallots will benefit from an application of general fertiliser in the soil prior to planting. Plant as instructed. Check every few days, until growth commences and re-plant any sets that are disturbed by birds etc.

When the leaves start to die down, use a fork to partly ease the shallots out of the soil. After a few days, bend the tops over and after a similar period, lift the shallots leaving them on the surface to ripen. When dry, rub off the loose skin and roots. Store in a cool dry place in trays.

Side growth can be used in spring salads. Excellent for cooling or pickling.
Obviously I don't know how good our onion sets, shallots and seeds are until they grow, but they were delivered promptly and well packed. Good value for money too. We've bought flower plugs from PMN in the past and they were very successful, so we're pretty confident that these will be fine. I like that these were available in smaller amounts as we don't have a lot of space. I don't doubt that we'll be back to buy more stuff before the Spring for both garden and greenhouse growing. The only thing I'd like to see changing is that the delivery cost cold be a bit less.
