Re: How to Grow Shallots

I planted my Shallots here in Wilmington, NC just after the first frost (around November 15th) and followed the directions above. One question, it is the day after Christmas and they have already all shot up nice tops. Do I need to cut off the tops or leave them alone? I have read that I may need to cut the tops to put more focus on the bulbs, but I may be confusing this with cutting off the seed head in June. Do you let the tops stay on through winter, or keep cutting them as they shoot up? Also, my garlic has shot up green stalks as well. Do I need to cut them off too, or leave them alone until June? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!
