what are the best time to grow spring onion

I put the cuttings off my store bought shallots into soil in Nov last year, they are still growing. So I don't think there is a 'time' really. They seem to be happy no matter what. Just don't let them dry out. Easiest herb to grow, I tried to grow them from seed many times always losing the tiny seedlings. But regrowing from store bought is so easy and they start producing new leaves within weeks.

I have been putting spring onion ends ( left over from the restaurant where I work) in the garden all year, they do a,as ingle well, all grow quite quickly. The Welsh onions don't seem to be as sturdy but I have had success with planting them in the dry winter months
