Depending on your location, this is the best time to start them. They require a bit of a cold period to flower properly, so keeping them under 40 for a few weeks will be necessary for them to sprout. This is usually the case in many areas at this time of year, so if this is the case in your area then you can go ahead and plant.

If it is above that temperature out, then you can still plant, but they not perform as well until next year.
