Sale between july 20th and november 15th only

This product is only available to order between July 1 and November 1 of each year. Treasures of our Quebec heritage, the Sainte-Anne shallot is a perfectly perennial alliaceae. It comfortably spends our Quebec winters under the cover of snow without any damage. It grows in the spring, very early, and we can then taste it as a green shallot. Then it multiplies and its foliage dries up. We will pull it out on June 24, on St-Jean Baptiste Day. Then we will dry it completely at home, to eat it but also to replant it at Ste-Anne, on July 26th. It will begin to grow again and store up for the winter. Then we start again in the spring!This product is only available between July 1 and November 1 of each year.Package of 8 shallots from Ste-Anne;For more information, * The price of this item is a little higher than our regular pouches to cover shipping costs*

The shallot winters well in Quebec, under the snow cover, but does not keep well indoors.
Jesuit House Garlic (Allium sativum var. ophioscorodon)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
**CAN'T BE SHIPPED OUTSIDE CANADA**When the Maison des Jésuites de Sillery, Quebec, began renovations, the gardener became concerned about the loss of a clump of garlic that had been growing there for years. He saved some bulblets that he took to Seeds of Diversity Canada. During the summer, we grew it. What was our surprise to see that the bulbils gave a large bulb of white garlic the first summer, and even a flower of garlic in September! And the flower of garlic appeared with multiple small green hairs of garlic growth. In addition, this garlic can multiply with several pebbles around the white bulb. In short, unknown name, nebulous origin, Jesuit garlic is an unknown variety that we are just beginning to know.

Carolina Garlic (Allium carolinianum)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
A friend gave us some seeds of this plant which he claimed was called Carolina Garlic. We do not know the exact identity of this plant, but we are currently researching it. It is a small perennial and hardy plant in Quebec, which looks like garlic chives, but is not! Its stems and leaves are a little larger, taste the same delicious as regular garlic and cook the same way. Although it does not produce large underground bulbs, the white base of this plant is cut and eaten like garlic, along with its leaves. Its purple flowers are magnificent and are a delight for pollinators from July to the end of August. Perfect in the permaculture garden. Not to be confused with garlic or wild garlic or wild garlic.

Growing Tips

Sow seeds indoors in April. Then take out the seedlings when temperatures permit. Each seed must be separated from its peers to produce a plant. Let it grow for the first year without eating. The second year, the sowing will have given a crown of small pods attached to each other. Stick your shovel into the tiller, then remove the half which you will eat. The other half can stay in the ground and survive the winter.
You can also take the opportunity to separate the small bulbs and replant them immediately in another location, in order to encourage the formation of a tiller in the following year.
