Growing Ambition shallots from seed is very simple, each seed produces a single shallot.
They tend to be larger than those grown from sets making them an excellent candidate for the showbench.
These seeds love a rich, moist, well drained soil in full sun. Ambition produces shallots with perfect shape for exhibition.
They are ready to harvest from August onwards once the tops have died back, allow to dry thoroughly.
Perfect shape for exhibition.
Sow Outdoors: March-May, thinly, direct into the required harvest position, ½in(1cm) deep, 3in (7.5cm) apart in rows 12in (30cm) apart. Keep soil moist at all times.
Grow On: If necessary thin seedlings to 3in (7.5cm) apart.
Harvest: August-September once the tops have died back.
Maybe not the quickest to deliver the order but good germination and quality seedlings resulted as usual.
I grow these every year and expect a good crop based on past years. Will be sowing them under glass during the first week of March. They suit my soil and location - north Wales coast - well and I recommend them.
