I planted all my Veltheimia seeds, including some I harvested from my 
own plants back in the summer, in October (mid-autumn), and they all 
sprouted pretty much. I do the same as Paul with my seed starting, 
except that I mix in some small gravel/grit and sand and other stuff 
into the seed-starting mix to make it drain extremely well, and I 
sprinkle Turface granules on top of the seeds instead of gravel. 
Otherwise, I start almost all my seeds the same way.
