Planting out

I decided to plant out my shallots today. I started them off in the greenhouse in modules just a few weeks ago.
They have put on a lot of new growth just in the last week as the days are getting longer now. You can see here what a lovely root system they have developed.
I prepared the bed a few weeks ago with quite a bit of garden compost and some hoof and horn meal (from Lidl) and I raked and weeded the patch. I have been fending off the neighbourhood cats who have been using it as a toilet!! Today I spaced the shallots about 7" apart and a foot between rows. Lots of rain and wind about at the moment so they should get a good watering in tonight.
