"Peter Cundall's year-round planting and sowing guide for vegetables" ("suitable for Tasmanian and cool-climate conditions") on the ABC radio website says to sow shallots in May and plant them during June to August. I'm not sure what the distinction is supposed to be between sowing and planting shallots.

'Sowing' refers to seeds and 'planting' refers to bulbs or sets
