Cosmos & zinnias ... when to sow?

I'm in zone 8b. Was planning on sowing cosmos later this month. Is that right? What about zinnias?

Last frost date for you around april 1 I believe. So maybe sow after that becoz those 2 plants like the heat. My understanding is the ground should be warm.

Well, I couldn't wait. They were all sowed this week. Still have a few of the dwarf cosmos to put in a couple other beds once I pull the pansies and snapdragons.
