Hi Jayne, I've grown Strelitzas for a number of years but have never grown them from seed. The seeds are like cannonballs and can be very difficult to germinate . I usually split mine as I find this to be the easier option - the only problem with using this method is that you won't get any flowers the following year but I can live with that .  Hope someone else may be able to help.
