I agree, too late to sow now, buy them in.
For future reference, this is how I sow lobelia, these are very easy to sow.
Sow on the surface of compost in rows/lines. Don't cover with compost. Put the tray into a carrier bag and place in a warm room. Mist every day. Once germination has taken place take out of bag and continue to mist until watering with a can is possible...
...if sowing per cell, tap twice on the seed packet for correct amount of seed per single cell.
Theres a reason why you can get up to 3000 seeds in each packet - you need a cluster of seeds to produce a decent sized plant.
