please can you tell me where I can purchase small round shallots seed in NZ

Shallots are generally grown from bulbs. What is sold in supermarkets is spring onions. A lot of difference. (Shallots are available in some NZ supermarkets - intended for cooking - Ed:)

Can I replant my new shallot bulbs straight away?

True shallots grow as a clump of up to 12-20 bulbs and when developed are purple skinned. If you keep some of these from one year to the next, all you need to do is plant 2-3 bulbs together and space them about 8-9
