Growing Onion

I have some onion sets left over from last year and want to plant them. All the articles I have seen thus far talk about growing them from seed/seedlings. Ours is a temperate climate, so when is a good time to plant them?

Sets . Another word for seedlings. If they are still fresh and viable they should be OK. In saying that, I am surprised that they are still OK from last year. (Gardenate : 'sets' are usually small onion bulbs with brown, papery skin)
