    Hi Sandy14 I asume you've Googled them, I have and cannot find seeds for sale. I assume the sets are expensive as they are often grown for exhibition. Are you wanting to show them or grow them for taste?  It might be that forum members can recommend another less expensive variety that has a similar flavour. You might get lucky and find someone has some saved seeds that they are prepared to let you have.image

    I should think it's a cultivar and can only be reproduced  by dividing bulbs.

    Hi KEF,

    I am thinking of showing them.

    Hi nutcutlet

    I am confused about  the being a cultivar because shallot seeds can be obtained

    for other varieties.
