    There is still a chance, as garlic will be more cold tolerant, therefor will usually show first. Depending on where you are located, it may not be warm enough for onions to come up yet. Especially if they are larger yellow onions, or species of sweet onions. They need warmer weather to be healthy.

    It would not hurt to seed again. This can ensure that they will come up, whether they are from the previous planting, or from this one. Just thin them out if they are too close together, once they do come up.
