Re: How to Grow Shallots

Two Questions: I have some 2 year old shallots. I do cut back the tops a bit for garnishes and I water them a bit every week year round. They are in pots in a greenhouse in northern coastal California (near Oregon). But, I'm not sure if I can harvest them since the tops don't die back, so far. Should I just dig up one and see what's going on with the bulb? I can't grow them outside since the soil is clay and gophers are rampant. And, do they make more bulbs that can be planted like garlic or do you start from new store bought bulbs each season? Thank you for your help!
