I grew onions from seed last year and had no problem at all and got a good crop. I have been looking at onion sets and find the biggest drawback is that they all contain 40-50 sets. This is far too many for my small veg plot and if I don't use all of them it pushes the price per onion up. At least with seeds I can sow as few or as many as I like and they still work out cheaper.
