Shallots 'Longue de Bretagne'

This variety is the best and most prolific I grow here on the West Coast of Scotland. Perhaps I plant earlier than most - early November. They overwinter just fine in the polytunnel, remaining firm and putting up lots of strong green shoots. This bodes well for the plentiful number of bulbs to harvest from a single parent! I give a nitrogen feed, ( weak manure tea! ) every two to three weeks from planting.
