I live in devon, the soil is heavy and neutral, and previously was part of a lawn.I fertilized with growmore before planting



Hi Francis, welcome to GOY. Many shallotts only divide into two or three. Yours have not dried out yet for easy division. This will remain as long as the roots are in the ground.
