    I grow shallots for pickling.This year I have only saved bulbs, about 25 each of Red Sun, Yellow Moon and Golden Gourmet. I have kept back 18 of each for direct planting (later) on the allotment. The remainder I have planted in multi-purpose compost in my cold greenhouse.I have problems with shallots running to seed if planted too early
