Sow seeds immediately you receive them. This may be at any time of the year into good quality seed raising mix and just cover seed with vermiculite or mix. Keep the seed tray moist at all times. Place the moist seed tray in a cold polyhouse or a shady corner . These seeds depend on having several months or sometimes up to a year in damp compost to germinate and need to experience a period of cold.( Not dry in a fridge.) These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate so do not discard. Do not use any artificial heat to speed up germination as this may simply send the seeds into a deeper dormancy cycle. Be patient they are worth it.
