when to sow seeds

hi all, can someone tell me when the best time is to sow seeds in the greenhouse, ideally the plants would need to be ready for summer...maybe im a little but late with them but anyway...i have marigold, pansy, and coleous seeds, so should i get them planted asap ?

    You're about a month late but they will catch up.

    I am not sure you will get the pansy growing, they dont like heat but the others are ok, if you're quick.

    I sowed some marigolds a few weeks ago and have just potted on today, I have more Marigolds that I am possibly going to sow direct where they are to go and also Busy Lizzies, which I am going to attempt to grow indoors.  I also have more Morning Glory that I am sowing, it's not too late for them.
