Onion seeds can be sown in modules indoors from January.
Unless you want to show your onions there is no need to thin them out, once the modules are planted out the onions will form a clump of bulbs which push themselves apart as they grow bigger.
Sow outdoors when a good tilth can be obtained (late Feb/March) in drills 12-15in apart and 3/4 in deep.
