Gardening: Buying Shallots plants

7 posts in this topic

I hates seedling... 90% attempt failed. But with plants..mostly works.

I want to plant shallots and garlic.. our earth, here in Weil am Rhein is a bit different. We dont have much winter, I find it awesome.

Anyone can advice me of/online shop I can buy plants for shallots and garlic, here in Germany? Or maybe somewhere in Europe that allows to send plants to germany?

A quick Google of knoblauch pflanzen preis will get you lots of links including Garlic and the search for schalotten pflanzen preis gives more like this site: Shallots . You could also try to plant the ones you find in a grocery store (though you'd be taking a chance with the types that may not be suitable for your region or your individual preference).

What you're looking for are Steckzwiebeln, but the longish, oval sort. The round ones are standard onions.

You can get them in any gardening center and DIY, e.g. Bauhaus or Obi.

Here are some links which I hope may be of use to you.

The main source of employment for people in Gönningen (near Reutlingen) used to be growing plants and vegetables and sending bulbs and seeds all over the world. I visited the small museum there some years ago and found it very interesting.

 

Das Museum im Rathaus der ehemaligen Samenhändlergemeinde Gönningen zeigt Gegenstände aus der einzigartigen Händlertradition des Ortes. Im 19. Jahrhundert verdiente rund die Hälfte der Gönninger Einwohner ihren Lebensunterhalt mit dem Hausierhandel von Saatgut und Blumenzwiebeln.

 

Neben vielen Dokumenten und Zeugnissen, die die Handelsreisen der Gönninger in Europa und über Europa hinaus belegen, ist auch die Rekonstruktion einer Samenhändlerpackstube zu sehen.

I forgot to mention, if anybody likes tulips visit Gönningen around the middle of April. Thousands of tulips bloom there at this time, they even have a Webcam so you can watch them grow all year round.

 

Tulpenblüte

 

Die alte Tradition der Gönninger Tulpenblüte ist von den Einwohnern des Dorfes am Fuß der schwäbischen Alb neu belebt worden: Ab Mitte April blühen auf dem Friedhof, in den Vorgärten und überall in Gönningen Tausende von Tulpen und Narzissen-Arten. Wie vor einem Jahrhundert können sich Einwohner und Besucher im Frühjahr an einem wahren Blumenmeer erfreuen.
