Growing onions in clay soil

Hannah Graham asked 11 years ago

Is it possible to plant onions from ordinary onions that have sprouted in the kitchen drawer or is it best to get bulbs? Also where we live the soil is like a very thick clay, is it best to plant in a container? We have dug in compost etc to the soil last year?

Onions from the kitchen or mature onions will simply flower. You could save the seed, of course, for next year.

It is late for planting onion sets, but still worth trying.
