Our Feedback
Dear Victoriana Team, After a long wait my Samphire plants have finally arrived and I am so impressed I immediately wanted to order some more. Oh and by the way, thank you for packing all of your plants so well. Even though it is quite frustrating to sieve through all the shredded newspaper and then trying to dispose of it with bits blowing all over the place(especially with bigger plants), your system really works and seems to be the best way of protecting the plants. I have had some bad experience with other garden centres before and actually vowed never to buy plants online again, yet you have really managed to convince me that it can be quite safe. Thank you very much.

RHS Award of Garden Merit

One of the best varieties of Shallot to grow from seed, Matador consistently produces heavy crops of quality bulbs. The thick reddish brown skin protects the pure white flesh beneath - which is gorgeously crisp and richly flavoured.

Stores very well - and can keep right through to spring of the following year.

  • Sow March to early May (not before) in seed trays or module trays under protection.
  • Provide a minimum germination temperature of 50°F (10°C), but ideally closer to 60°F (16°C).
  • Set out when large enough to handle 8" (20 cm) apart in rows 8" (20 cm).
  • Top Tips
  • Avoid planting out after the first week in June as bulbs will not mature properly from such late plantings.
  • Keep weed free at all times.
  • Avoid over-watering, but water thoroughly in warm dry spells.
