Growing onions from sets, small dry onions, are easy to do. Onions require cool weather to start growing and are frost hardy. In the area of Texas where I live we can plant onions in January and February.

For more technical information about growing onions, see the link below from the Agrilife Extension from the Texas A&M System. I personally do not use any commercial herbicides at all or pesticides. If I find it necessary to get rid of garden pests I make my own homemade organic pesticides.
