Short Onions Not Growing

The white and yellow short onions sets were planted 4 weeks ago and have not done anything. Further my green onions have been in from seed for 6 weeks and have just broken up through the soil and have not done anything either. I have never had an onion actually bulb out to any size. We are in Southwest Florida.

The weather is ideal for growing onions. However, here I never had much luck planting my seeds in the ground. I find it best to just use a drum or pot and sprinkle my seeds on top. One thing about onions seeds is that birds won't eat them. Onion's take time to grow and mature. I plant a lot of bunching onions here and when they start bunching I separate the onions and replant them. This way I always have onions growing. Here is an excellent guide that can give you a few tips and pointers for growing your onions.
