I think the key to successful fast germination is heat and around 15-25 degrees C soil temperature seems good for many different seeds my DIY propagator uses a plate warmer for heat and at 60 watts (average about 30 watts an hour) just over 5 KW a week or about £1 (sunny days will half that) I seem to find a couple of days will bring forth seedlings maybe it helps that they have been in my greenhouse a week before they get the heat.
