@Farhan.........I have got seeds today :D . Thanks a lot.Please tell me about the sowing period of
1: mexican hat
2: salvia
3: tooth ache.
And I would also like to know whether they have to be planted directly in the pot or bed or can they be shifted when they germinate.

Preferably in pots...and when they are large enough if you have space in beds.
All should be sowed in Late October or November.
Tooth ache is to be surfaced sown...rest at the depth of twice the size of the seeds.
