I think I probably did sow them indoors first in a covered propagator and then moved them outside, potted on and left them in the coldframes before I planted them.
Mind you I sowed some calendula outside in trays last Autumn and they seem to have pulled through the winter, just potted them on, on the weekend. I've just sown some blue cornflowers outside in a tray, just to see what happens.
Will do some more sowing over the next few weeks of hardy annuals
