Shallots tend to be small if they are not watered ebough or if the soil is not rich enough, but it may also be the variety you are using. General cultural instructions include weeding and mulching to reduce competition and to keep the soil cool and moist, and being sure to plant them out very early in the spring -- at least a month before the last frost. The tops shold be left to grow until the foliage begins to yellow, then knocked over to help the bulbs cure. Finally, shallots grown from bulbils will be smaller, and shallots that are allowed to flower will also be smaller.
