Onions need a well drained sunny site that has been well dug in autumn adding plenty of compost or well rotted manure. Onions do not grow well in acidic soil so adding lime maybe necessary. Apply a general fertiliser a week before planting.
Sow January - February indoors into a seed tray of moist compost cover with glass or a propagator lid.
Sow the seed direct outside between March - April sparingly in drills 1.5cm deep and 45cm between rows. Thin the seedlings in 2 stages when the seedlings have straightened up thin to 5cm between plants then to 10cm apart.
Make sure the onions are kept well watered during dry spells.
