Relatively new to starting onion plants from seed & was wondering when to sow my seeds for a planting date of around St Patty's Day......

RE: Sowing Onion Seed........

Any time now. I started the short day varieties 2 weeks back and I'll start seeding the intermediate day varieties in the greenhouse next week. But then I will also be transplanting outside much earlier than you plan to - early to mid-February as soon as the ground is dry enough to work. At my latitude I need as many days of 12+ hours of sunlight as possible for big bulbs.
