    I grew Radar this year, they are over wintering types so can be put in from now onwards (Sept / Oct) i think.

    You have plenty of time to plant them. As long as your spring ones did not have any disease problems you could use the same spot again but only this time. There was a time when the onion bed was permanent but that is not now advised.
