I used to find transplanting onion seedlings back breaking and tedious.
But, ah, here is the easy solution.
Dig a trench and push the soil taken out to the right.
Place one seedling at a time along the trench, roots at the bottom ,leaves lying against the soil on the left.
As you push the soil from the right into the trench use your trowel to gently squeeze against the wall of the trench, at the same time you will create a new trench.
Don't worry about trying to stand the seedlings upright, over the next week they will stand up by themselves.
