Title: Shallots and weed control
Post by: surfivor on March 22, 2020, 12:27:03 AM

I have been trying to grow shallots. In past years I have had problems with weeds. Last year I planted clover around the shallots but somehow the clover root system was very strong and pulling up the clover when it got too thick without effecting the shallots seemed to be a problem.

This year I am considering using buckwheat around the shallots to keep our weeds and maybe some romaine lettuce. Some people use plastic sheets but that doesn’t seem very permaculture tho I may try it on a couple of shallots for the heck of it, not sure
