Stachys monieri

I need some advice on germinating seeds of Stachys monieri: not any Stachys, only species monieri. The seeds are from this summer's flowers and appear to be very difficult to germinate. Any info will be much appreciated.

RE: Stachys monieri

Store seed at 70F for 2-3 weeks then store at 40F for 12 weeks.....
Then do not cover the seed as light required... soil temp 65-70F & takes 10-21 days to germinate & 13 weeks of growing on time to be large enough to set out "green"
If this does not work then check viability of seed....
