want to grow onions from seed, bought some seeds[unwins grow- shore wellington]can anybody help in the best way to start them off?



in the past I have sprinkled 3 seeds on the top of copost in 3" pots. when they grow to the size of a chive I plant them out, removing the 2 weakest seedlings. they are nice in salads rather than composting them. Follow planting distances.
Alternativley sow in drills direct in the soil and thin as and when needed.
