Stokes Seeds has a chart of flower seeds that can be sown in July, August and September. It helps the perennials get a good start so they should bloom the following Spring. Has anybody had any experience doing this and what flower seeds have you sown those months? Are these sown directly or in containers or nursery pots, then transplanted?

In the past I sowed balloon flowers in July that actually bloomed in October. I started them in cells indoors.

I dug through my two storage boxes of printed matter from the internet on perennials that one can plant in July, August and September that had appeared in Stokes Seeds catalog..wouldn't you believe after about an hour or looking and getting side tracked looking at sheets that I had printed off on wintersowing and propagation, and growing informaiton of annuals as well as perennials, I found it.

I wanted it so I can get some perennials sown and ready for the Fall plant swap.
