Growing Shallot - Simiane from seed

Shallots are relatively easy to grow and are fantastic low maintenance crops for amateur or experienced gardeners alike. Taking up very little space they are ideal for filling your vegetable patch amongst other veg. Growing shallots from seed means you have the potential to grow them larger than standard shallots.
