Hi Steve and all
      I have 5 year, 3 year and 1 year old plants, all germinated from 
seed.  They have been one of the easier plants to grow.  I use garden 
soil that is amended with some course sand and leaf mold.  I just put 
the seed in a 6 inch by 6 inch soil filled pot, cover with a little more 
soil and a quarter inch of chicken grit, plunge the pot into a sawdust 
bed and wait for spring.  I've tried orienting the seed on edge in half 
the pot, and laying flat in the other, but couldn't see that it made a 
bit of difference.
