Are you chilling them?

Do you mean before sowing or as the instructions said after two weeks of 20c which i did

I have to be honest with you the seeds that need to be chilled  as you did seem to be the hardest to germinate. I have the patience of a saint and a garage fridge but my success rate is very low. Carol Klein seems to be the expert on these but she leaves them outside over winter. I did try this but mine got knocked over in a storm.

Maybe a stratification expert could give us some advice

Well i have a shed fridge and lots of patience, my mum did say to me just to leave them and check them every month or so. Thanks for that KateDo you know i love this site this is my kind of facebook, no idle gossiping just plant talk
