    Good morning @wigeon   Yes, I have - successfully.  But like all seeds, they can be very mischievous - some will surface and others won't.   If you grew some last year, you will know that they need heat to germinate.   

    I have nurtured some different pepper and chilli seeds carefully in my conservatory, spray misting them, plastic over the top since the 18th February.  Most have come up -  weee!  Peering into a  large pot just outside my kitchen door in full blast of a cold wind yesterday - there are about 3 pepper/chilli seeds that are at the 2-leaf stage!  That's nature for you!
    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.
