    Two weeks ago I sewed the following:

    Purple Tiger
    Blue Christmas
    Tappas Peppers
    Numex Twilight
    Peruvian Yellow (seeds from last years crop - from fresh chillis)
    Red Cayenne (seeds from last years crop - from dried chillis)

    ...they were put in the same propagator unit as tomatoes and spring onions (not planted together). The toms ans onions germinated days ago but nothing from the chillis despite most of the packets saying they would it 14 days. The compost is specific seed compost and I try to keep the compost warm and damp.

    It is just a case of patience or have it done something wrong?

    Is the prop a heated on or not. Where have you put it in the house?

    In a heated prop, you should see the first signs of life after 5-10 days. Unheated will take considerably longer.

    Leave them near a heat source, but check they don't dry out. I have some in an airing cupboard, as I have run out of space.
