Just received E. Walking Onions - now what?

I received these yesterday (fresh pulled bulb, stalk and bulbils) and am so pleased since I've been interested in Egyptian Walking Onions since first seeing them in this forum. I just don't know what to do next! (Long story, but I don't know who left them for me, so can't ask him/her.)

I know I could run a search, but am so swamped at the moment if anyone could give some concise first steps to get me started I'd really appreciate it very much.

BTW, I have a small garlic bed with garlic about ready to harvest. Can these crops take turns in that bed?

Had a few moments and found what I needed.

RE: Just received E. Walking Onions - now what?

I'm in western NY, and I plant my top bulbs in the fall, end of Sept or in Oct. it doesn't seem to matter, just as long as they get a good start before the ground freezes. I plant them almost touching each other for harvesting in the spring, leaving every second or third or so to develop sets on top for planting in the fall. If you leave them all in they will also multiply on the bottom, but get pretty thick after a while and are tough to keep weeded

We have them here, and they grow by dropping themselves on the soil. I don't do a thing, but pull up the ones we don't want. Most of them, that is! They are a little too hot and spicy for us, but I give many away, so others can grow them because they look different. They are in the ground all year in our area, Wa. state.
