Our twin pack contains 5 bulbs of Golden Gourmet and 5 bulbs of Red Sun.
Golden Gourmet: Produces large golden brown round shallots with reduced bolting incidence. Stores well throughout the winter. Mild taste. Consistent cropper with high resistance to bolting and disease. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
Red Sun: Popular due to its attractive red tinged skin. One of the best red shallots. Good yields of crisp, white fleshed bulbs. Excellent for cooking, in salads or for pickling. Bulbs have long storage potential.
How to plant: Prepare the planting area well in advance by incorporating some compost to improve the soil fertility and drainage. Avoid planting onions on freshly manured soil. Plant onion sets in areas with full sun and in rows of well drained soil. Plant the bulbs so that the tip of bulb is just protruding through the surface of the soil. Leave a space of 30cm (12") between each row and 18cm (7") between each bulb.
