How soon can I direct-sow my nasturtium seeds outdoors?

Fairmont, WV(Zone 6a)

The instructions on the packet say "wait until after last frost", but I did read somewhere that they can be sowed the same time as peas--which in this area is usually around March 15. Any ideas?

Clarksville, TN(Zone 6b)

It's usually recommended to plant after last frost and that's when I've planted mine. They don't tolerate a hard freeze but will usually sprout back after a light frost or freeze. They like warm days and cool nights and stop flowering during summer in hot summer areas.

Ayrshire Scotland, United Kingdom

We have such a varied climate here in Scotland so as a general year, I wait and plant my seeds just as soon as I see the weed seedlings apear, nature normally knows better than us impatient gardeners as Ive made the mistake of planting seeds too early many times before.
Good luck. WeeNel.
