Hm... You are right on the edge of where you can plant twice per year.

Your best bet will be to plant these in early spring, but after the coldest part of the year. (They need that cold to germinate, but don't need super cold weather) If you want to try for a Spring popup... You can attempt a planting now. Just cast the seeds where you intend for them to grow. Just know that since you are right on that line... some may not germinate.
