    Most if not all of the seeds that you list are sold by commercial seed companies that have their catalogues on line, and those catalogues show, for each seed, when it is to be sown. Go to the site for the Thompson and Morgan company, for example (http://www.tmseeds.com) or Stokes seeds (http://www.stokeseeds.com/cgi-bin/StokesSeeds.storefront) and find their listing for the seed that you have been given; it will include information about when the seeds should be sown.

    There are probably a zillion other ways of getting this information on line, but the foregoing is pretty easy.

    Milk weed to you need to sow in the Fall just as nature does it.

    Some of these are annuals and some prennials but most can be started inside end of March or I do here

    Sunflowers grow so fast. You started them about 3 weeks before last frost date

    Hope this helps
