Answer: They need light to germinate, so sow them on the soil surface. They also do best with temperatures of about 70 degrees C. They may take up to 20 days to germinate. You can transplant them within about 4 weeks. Typically you wouldn't want to start seeds too early inside, because the seedlings become tall and leggy without sufficient sunlight. Canterbury bells is a biennial, so probably won't flower until the following year. Good luck!
