Hi germination is dependant mainly on warmth. Old seed always seems to take longer too. Parsnips do take a while to germinate and you must keep the soil around them moist. Pak choi does germinate quickly. Courgettes & chillis I guess you have these inside.
I start sweetcorn in individual modules next week. French beans i start in a damp cloth also next week then plant those which throw out roots into individual pots. Neither sweetcorn or french beans can stand the cold.
