Plant Garlic & Shallots This Fall
Depending on your location, it's time to start thinking about planting Shallots and Garlic in your garden for a bountiful harvest next summer!
Somewhere in taste between Garlic and Onions but milder, richer and sweeter than both, Shallots add a subtle deliciousness to everything from eggs and vinaigrette to soups, braised meats and creamy sauces. And life without Garlic would be bland indeed. We all crave its zip and zing.
In most parts of the U.S., both Shallots and Garlic are best planted after the time of the first fall frost date. In fact, they can be planted up to and even into December. They both need just enough time to set down their roots and get established before the ground freezes for the winter. Start preparing your beds now, and planting your sets as the weather gets colder.
