Anytime
Sowing to Germination: 3 - 4 weeks
Germination to Transplant: 4 - 8 weeks

Cutting back at Transplanting: Not Necessary.
Container Size(s): 1 plug per 8/9 cm (3 1/2") / 2 plugs per 15 cm (6")
Vernalization: There is no current research on vernalization but a prudent recommendation for any perennial would be 6-12 weeks (a few might need 15 weeks!) at an average daily temperature of 40°F (5°C). Exposure to cold may not be necessary for flowering but might improve quality.
Forcing: An obvious place to experiment - following vernalization - would be raising daytime temperatures to 60° - 65°F (15° - 17°C). Provide 16 hours of continuous lighting. During the short days of winter, provide a night interruption lighting of 4 hours between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m.
Fertilizer: Medium (150-200 ppm)
