I'm interested in planting red onions, I am growing spring onions, and leeks quite successfully but know nothing about red onion planting and care. Could you please advise me. I only have a small balcony style garden.

All the onion family are pretty similar to grow. Plant them similar time as spring onions and leeks. If you want more info google

telling people to google something on a plant website is just lazy. @Jacqueline, you can safely plant the red onions as if they were spring onions, just allow for more space between the plants Note: Gardenate does not advise google - we assume that is how the questioner found our site)
