you should start your seeds now unless you want small onions.
feed the soil not the plants

you learn gardening by making mistakes

end of april early may.sow in a tray to bring them on,once they have the second true leaf put them into individual pots or modules to carry on growing until april-may,i have sown them direct into the soil around april and they grew as big as golf balls,tasted ok though.
