Just wondering if it would still be okay to plant out shallots this
week with the cold weather coming

I don't have heirloom shallots, altho I found the idea of leaving one plant to seed a good one, although how long do shallot seeds take to grow into bulbs? Do I need to lift them and overwinter?
I really needed to know how far apart to grow shallots in a container.

I have planted out shallots in trays in the greenhouse, early jan. however they was in seed form and not in bulb! Was this a good idea as i am a novice allotment owner. Alot of ppl seam to be planting out bulb form?
