Lynchis ('Ragged Robin')

I know I've done a few posts, but last one for a while...
I'm wanting to grow some lynchis seeds, but some websites say sow september outdoors and others say sow february indoors...I have no idea, can anyone help please?
I've grown Lychnis chalcedonica from T&M seeds sown in spring. They took two seasons to flower well and needed staking, but only lasted about 5 years although that may be down to them not liking my clay soil much, or perhaps not getting enough sun (I planted them by an East-facing hedge, so they only got full sun for about half a day.)
Thankyou everyone, how often do you have to split them and do you know how long they take to germinate?
Do you stake lynchis, as I heard online it can be floppy?
It probably depends on variety. My chalcedonica grew to about 3 feet tall and went down in the wind unless staked.
