Q.I Just Got Some Ageratum Blue Planet Seeds But They Didn’t Come With Directions When To Plant Them? Outdoors.

I usually sprinkle them on top of the soil but the weather has been so different this year I don’t know when to plant. I live in Southern Maryland not terribly far from the Chesapeake Bay, the Patuxent River and the Potomac River. Our weather tends to move up from the Northern Neck of Virginia. How much sun does this variety require?
