As much I love seed sowing I'm trying to keep my hands and fingers off them for about another month. I've grown Delphs, Cleomes, cosmos and sweet peas from seed before. With the first 3 I would sow maybe end of March/April? I used to start mine off inside around this time in a normal propagator but don't have any deep windowsills in this house and it can be a bit tricky this time of year with space and light etc
Can't remember if Aquelegia like a cold spell or not.
So all mine will be sown outside either in my coldframes or greenhouse. If I use a propagator I increase the ventilation or take the top off completley once the seedlings are up.
Sweet peas would probably do ok now. Some people start them off in the Autumn and others wait till Spring. There's lots of seedaholics on here so you'll be sure of plenty of advice and encourgaement should you need it
