Shallot Conserver F1 Seeds
This is a very good shallot, similar to the traditional types, with higher shoulders and a round base and deep brown. Excellent variety for exhibition if grown well.
It’s quite possible if you grow a good number to select very even sets that can be saved to be multiplied in years to come the same way all shallots have been selected. All started from seed at one time.
Shallots can be added to salads, using them minced in salad dressing, pickling, caramelising, frying, or roasting on their own or with other vegetables.
Sow in Modules or small pots in good seed compost, not before April or they may run to seed. Plant out in the garden at 6 inches all ways. Select the very best and save until the following year, that way you can build up your elite stock. Do not plant on White Rot-infested land. Store on a cold dry building.
Hints and Tips
Do not overfeed, plant on clean land that’s free of white rot.
