It’s a big mis­take to plant large seedlings of long-keep­ing onions such as Cream­gold or Aus­tralian Brown at this time of the year. If grown dur­ing short­en­ing day­light hours through the pe­riod of day-length change af­ter June 21, they in­vari­ably bolt use­lessly to seed in Novem­ber. This makes them a waste of money, time and space. Long keep­ing onions are best seed-sown di­rect or planted as tiny seedlings in late June.
