    If these are the very dark purple annual ones with grey green leaves I'd wait til it gets warmer and sow them straight into the garden. They don't like being transplanted.

    I know that conventional wisdom always says so them direct, but a few years ago having had problems doing this I started to sow them in modules. This seems to minikisw root disturbance but allow me to get fairly large plants before I plant them out.                   I would still wait until it warms up a bit before sowing
