Default Growing Shallots in Northern Climates

Reposted from an earlier thread:

I am new to shallots this year. I planted shallot and onion sets and seed grown onion plants around St Pats day. All have come up and doing okay (garlic looks more robust though).

Today I picked up another bag of shallot sets from the sale bin. They are nice and firm, and I could possibly store them till fall. Are these ever planted in fall in my zone?

They are yellow moon and picasso.

The bag instructions show to plant April - June in my zone. The bag also states they are hardy to -30 - -40F. Is there a chance they will benefit from cold treatment, ie garlic?
