Vegetable Seeds - Shallot

In some ways shallots are easier to grow than onions and have a big advantage in that they store better than onions, possibly due to their being smaller. 12 months is usual for storing shallots and we’ve had them keep in good condition for 18 months.

Keen gardener? Well, you can easily grow shallots from seed! A high quality, easy-to-grow, bolt-resistant variety, producing a good crop of attractive, tasty, reddish/brown-skinned shallots that are suitable for long-term storage.What are F1 Hybrids?Seed can be either Open Pollinated or a F1 Hybrid. Open pollinated seed is naturally pollinated and genetically diverse. F1 hybrids are deliberately created by crossing two different parent varieties to produce a seed which has particular characteristics.Garden Organics Principles of Organic Gardening allow the use of F1 hybrids only when there are no other alternatives available to the grower. On these rare occasions, an organic F1 hybrid is preferred but, if unavailable, a non-organic F1 hybrid can be used.If youre growing to save seed, Garden Organic recommends choosing an Open Pollinated variety. F1 Hybrids are less likely to produce seed true to type or hold the same characteristics as the plant you saved it from.
