Two western delphiniums

Last winter I got seed of Delphinium hesperium and Delphinium cardinale from
Ron Ratko.  Both quickly germinated magnificently but then went dormant in
mid-spring.  I wondered if they were done but kept them bone dry over the
summer and lo-and-behold saw they were returning today.  They were sown
thickly in a 3 ½” pot and I’d appreciate advice on how long to keep them in
their seed pots and how and when to handle the seedlings, ideally at a time
they can be moved straight into the garden.
