One thing to try is gently rubbing the seeds between fine sandpaper. This abrades the seed coating and makes it possible for water to get in and so they germinate better.

you can either scatter them where you want them to grow in well raked soil or in pots of good compost. I dont normally do anything to the seed and they germinate in about 10-14 days in a warm 15-18 degrees C propagator.
