Answer: Because you live in a cold winter region, I'd advise against sowing the seeds outdoors now. They may be lost in heavy rains or snow melt. Instead, I would store the seeds over the winter months and plant them in the spring.
You can either sow them directly outdoors in the garden in the spring, or you can start the seeds indoors so the little plants will be ready to be planted in the garden in the spring. If you start your seeds indoors, you can start them about 6 weeks before spring weather begins. In your region, you can start the seeds indoors in February and the little plants will be ready to go outdoors in April. If you plan to sow the seeds directly in the garden, you can sow them in late April.
Hope this answers your question!
