Or, you can soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours before sowing.

Sow seeds 3/4 inch deep, in pots or trays of moist seed compost. Place in a warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between (20°C/68°F, 25°C/77°F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged. Germination can take months, don't give up.
