How Do You Start You Pansies From Seed?

Do you put them in the fridge or just at a cool 60 -65? How Do You Do It? What Do You Use To Control The Temperature?

Thanks

I sow them outside in a communal container on the north side, cover lightly with sand or grit, water with fish & seaweed.

I think the temp fluctuation is good for them to break dormancy. The F&S has ingredients that help to break dormancy as well.

It's worked consistently for me over the past few years.
