Late start

Between one thing and another, I have not yet planted a number of packets of seeds of perennials. My thinking is that it probably would be better to start them now, in pots, and transplant the after they are well along, rather than throw the seeds into the refrigerator until next spring. That way, they will at least have a good start, maybe 4 months until the first frost (about November 10, in my area) and might bloom next year. Comments?

RE: Late start

You can sow perennials in the Autumn. Or check out the Winter Sowing Forum. There's no need to refrigerate until next year.
