Answer: I wouldn't give up yet. Rock cress takes 20-25 days to germinate; delphinium seeds are quite short-lived, so if your seed is not fresh that could be a factor; candytuft takes 16-20 days to germinate and prefers a temp of 55-65F; soapwort needs complete darkness to germinate, so cover those too; and as you've learned, hollyhock needs light (though 8/11 isn't bad!)
Perennial seeds seem to me to be more difficult to grow than annuals. And as I mentioned, some flower seeds don't keep well. I would keep these flats going, but start more seeds of the ones you want more of. If you're keeping the soil evenly moist, using a sterile mix and clean pots, then it sounds like you're doing things right.
