All mine have germinated without soaking, King's seeds. Eagle seeds are excellent too. The ones I didn't have much success with were T&M. So it may be the supplier, not the method.
I didn't mean problems just with chipping sweet peas, I was wondering generally how your problems affect your gardening. I am getting arthritis in my hands, especially the left one which I used for pulling up the weeds that I have dug with my trowel in my right hand. Sometimes I lose my grip and drop things. I used to hand milk Jersey cows, think that was the cause - and genetics.
