You can sow the seeds directly in a prepared garden bed. As long as you keep the seeds moist they will sprout. They won't grow much in the heat but will spend most of the summer and fall months developing good root systems. They will die down in the winter but since these are perennials they will come back next spring, ready to perform. I would go ahead and sow the seeds now. Enjoy!
