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 in February under cloches or direct outside in March - April. Sowing the seed sparingly in drills 1.5cm deep and 15cm between rows. Thin the seedlings in 2 stages when the seedlings have straightened up thin to 5cm between plants then to 30cm apart.
Make sure the onions are kept well watered during dry spells.
Feed as soon as the bulbs begin to swell. 
The thinnings can be used as spring onions.
