Just returned from a week in Berlin so now need to crack on with the work(wouldn`t have mattered anyway as it was hard frost all week I was away!) First job was to plant my shallots. This year I am growing 120 large Hative de Niort and 36 for the pickling class. With the large shallots I plant the bulbs into 3 litre pots of Levington M3 compost - I know a lot will say thats big pots - but I need them in these pots as I really have no guarantee weather wise up here as to when I will be able to plant out - hence the reason for the larger pots to allow them to remain in them if required.
