Sow your seeds in the early autumn September if you can in compost mixed with some grit - about a quarter and sow on top with a light covering of vermiculite as they need light. They also need a cold spell so put in cold frame or a sheltered spot outdoors, they love boggy conditions so do not let them dry out. Germination can be as long as 40 days so do not throw out. Just have patience Joyce. You will be well rewarded as they selfseed when established.
My new fuchsias have just arrived so all 15 potted up now. Very nice big plugs and very good condition after flying in from Guernsey.
