I have some dried Black Eyed Susan seeds that I robbed from my Plants last year.
Can I start them in potting soil and Egg cartons in the window sill?
I would like to start other Perenials as well by seed , is this a good method?
What would you reccomend?

These general methods will work for many perennials, however some have specialized temperature ranges for germination and different chilling requirements. Many perennials can also be propagated by division or by rooted cutting, and these methods will produce larger blooming sized plants faster than you will get them from seed. You may also find seedlings out in the garden and can transplant them to more desirable locations -- this works best if done in early spring.
