Onions need a fairly mellow compost. The best conditions to grow onions in would be to have a very rich composted bed which you grow something like tomatoes or zucchinis in (heavy feeders) and once those summer crop are finished plant onions in to that same soil. That will give you the best onion results. Onions also require a cold period to form the bulb
