Delphinium Seeds- Why do people always start them inside?

Seems all the advice on planting Delphinium seeds is about starting indoors.

Is that just to get blooms the first year?

What about direct sowing nature does it?

Anyone out there do it that way?

If so, how did it go?

Below is a photo of Delphinium "Morning Lights" that I bought rooted, that had lots of seeds after it flowered in my garden.

Some fell and I collected some and later decided to put them back outside in late December to hopefully grow.

I'm zone 6b.
