I had 2 year old seeds that I nicked, soaked overnight, and then planted 10 days ago. Of 10 seeds, so far 2 have sprouted on day 9, so I am really happy! I had done the same when the seeds were given to me, but those didn't sprout. This leads me to believe they have to dry out completely, thus the fresher 3 month old seeds didn't sprout when treated the same exact way.
