Plant in a sunny, sheltered spot with a moist (but not waterlogger!) soil. The onions can be grown in planters or raised beds and should be spaced about 10cm apart.
Onions grow relatively slowly and the bulbs don't tend to swell until the summer so be patient. Water regularly to keep the soil moist and also weed regularly so the onions don't have too much competition. Keep an eye out for Onion White Rot which can damage the onions.
The onions can usually be harvested in late summer. When the leaves tun yellow, check to see if they are ready to harvest and then carefully dig one or two up with a hand fork and have a look.
