Griselle offers you a spicy shallot ready to harvest from early summer. We recommend you enhance a tasty tagine with Griselle or other Mediterranean dishes. Otherwise called the grey shallot is an interesting addition to your plot, despite the name.

Griselle gives you long shallots, easy to prepare and slice. Also known as the banana shallot you get the idea of the shape and good size from every bulb at harvest time.

How to plant

Get the soil ready now by raking the area after sprinkling some pre-planting Onion, Garlic and Shallot Feed over the area (about a handful per square metre). At planting time prod your finger or thumb into the soil to a depth of around an inch and place your sets in each hole. Space the sets 20-25cm (4- 6in) apart and cover. The tips of your sets should just be visible above the soil surface. Label and date the variety so you have a record of when you planted.

By all means plant shallot Griselle in containers too if you are short of outdoor space but be sure the container is sufficiently deep (30cm+) 12+in so the bulbs have space to establish underground over the winter and spring.

Water the soil each day but cease watering from around May in the last few weeks before harvest. Harvest when you notice the stems yellow and they start to wilt.

Useful tip

Constant weeding is ultra-important around your shallot plants as they develop over spring and into early summer. Use a hand hoe in containers or larger hoe if growing garlic directly in the beds.
