You can pre soak the seeds, for a better germination about 12 hours prior to sowing in tepid water. This softens the seeds and make the germination a bit easier. Sow from February on in trays filled with moist potting soil. Sow shallow and sparingly and cover the seeds with a tiny layer of soil. Put the trays in a propagator with lid to keep the temperature as even and constant as possible. This helps also with the germination.
