Ive just pulled all my onions from October 2013 and I want to save some for "sets"

They were Radar and Red Cross

Never done this before so any assistance would be appreciated

What do you mean by 'sets.' I presume they are normal-sized onions, not 'set' size.

If you plant them again, they will just run to seed. Sets you buy  are specially heat treated to arrest  development.

NewBoy, I would stick with sets until you have some experience. They are foolproof. Have a look at varieties when they come into the shops later in the year.
