i am expecting these seeds any day now.I live in zone 6-7 (WV).what is the best way to handle these this time of year? Can I just plant them in a partial shady area directly in my garden?or do I have to do the 6-10 week rotation in fridge?How long does it usually take these to bloom?

The simplest way is to plant them directly in the garden or prepared bed so that they stay moist. Next February or March, you will see the seed leaves emerge.

Do I need to water daily throughout the summer to kep moist?

Let nature take its course with the seeds in the ground. You can expect bloom in 2-3 years. Same holds for sowing in media and potting/stepping up as they mature.
