|Sandy Since they are older seed I would try a few seeds different ways.
I would soak for more than 24-30 hours for sure.
I would do like 3 seeds in a little 3" pot and cover with a piece of plastic and put out where it will get some light and warmth, but not burning sun rays. and leave on til you seed them starting to germinate. Don't have the soil too wet, just moist. I had seed rot on me from having the soil too wet thinking it would help with germination. The outsides looked good , but opening a couple up the insides had turned to mush. It takes longer for the seeds to pop this way, so be patient.
Soak a few in just warm water before going to bed and sow next morning
Soak a few in H202 in warm water at bedtime and plant next morning.
Soak a few overnight in warm water with just a teeny tiny bit of MG. There are alot of folks who will use a tiny bit of the blue Mg in the water to help wake up older seeds. They have had it work on seed 5-20 years old and swear by this method.
