Bergamot seeds - time to first flower

Hi all

I’ve just got some Bergamot (hardy perennial) seeds that I’ve just started off indoors. 

Should I expect these to flower this year or will I have to wait for next year? thanks in advance

    No, they’re perennials sow this year, flower next year.
    i kept mine in pots over winter,  I’ll plant the out next month.

    Thank you for your reply. I've had perennials flower first year from seed is all. I guess it must have just been because it was such a nice spring last year!
