Last spring, I planted some seed onions in the empty spaces around my tomato plants. But then the tomatoes went nuts and took over the whole garden. The onion plants soon disappeared under all the tomato vines. After removing the tomatoes, I've found that just a few of the onions survived but the bulbs are not any larger than when we planted them.

If I plant them back in the ground, will they survive over the winter and continue to grow in the spring? Should I store them indoors somehow to replant later or should I just use them as green onions now?

I've never grown onions but from what I think I remember people saying they are a winter crop and should be planted in the fall.

In our area (North Texas) onions should be planted now in well prepared beds - and high. Many gardeners plant onions too deep in the ground. Also they have small root systems and need to be fertilized carefully. The transplants should be available in the nurseries and feed stores now.
