Erigeron from seed

I have seed of the following:-

aureuscompositusex compositus 'Rocky'and gaudinii which I understand to be a European species.

Whats the best time of year to sow in the Northern hemisphere please, any other information appreciated?

These seeds will germinate quickly in warm weather. I'd simply pot them up, give them plenty of moisture and keep them warm. In one to two weeks you should see some germination. Very easy to get going in my experience. Wait for at least 2 months before either potting them on or planting them out.
