Wintersowing - when to start tomato

Hi Fellow Wintersowers - I got some fabulous heirloom tomato seeds from Trudi and I'm wondering when to wintersow them? I'm in Ft Collins. Some folks say start in early March -- some say early April. This is my first year ws'ing and have 75 perenials already done -- with sprouts on Sweet William and Yarrow (Yippie! it works!)Any suggestions?

RE: Wintersowing - when to start tomato

Anytime over the next month should be fine. The tomato seeds will start germinating whenever the nighttime lows reach that magic number, which for me here is usually the last week of April.
