Q.Shallots, Pot Size and Production
I’m a small balcony gardener and my shallots are about 3 weeks old. What do they look like underneath the soil? How big a pot and how many shallots can I expect from each plant?

Shallots adapt well to growing in containers as long as they are well-drained. You'll have to water and feed them a little more--the way you do any container plant. As a rule of thumb, for the smaller more shallow-rooted plants, like shallots, use a minimum container depth of 12", and for the larger varieties 18"-24" deep.
