Starting the spring seeds

Even though it is Feb here, it is time to start the spring seeds.  I am starting cone flowers and columbine’s for a wild flower garden out back.  They need to be “pre-chilled” which means planting and then keeping in the refrigerator for a month.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t have that kind of room.  Fortunately, we live in Chicago, and I just kept them outside for a month.  The cone flowers came up in less than a week, and the package says they should take 2.  The columbine take 21 days to sprout, so we will see when those emerge.
