Black Eyed Susan Vine for hanging basket

When would you start the seeds for BES for hanging basket and how would I start it? In a small 3" pot or directly in a basket planter? I am in zone 6 and I have a south facing sunroom.
Thanks for any help, Jerry

Thanks for help. When you say "use what you have" does it mean that I can use Jiffy type fiber pots? I will start them tomorrow morning.
BTW, you have a great web site. I have to take time and watch all the videos.
Thanks again, Jerry

Diane, do you have trouble transplanting? I hear they don't like it, so have been hesitant about trying them again from seed. I sowed some last year in a couple of paper pots but they didn't grow or bloom well in subsequent container pots. Do you keep them in full sun? I started them last year in mid April because of the transplant concern, and worries that they would be too big by late May.
