Couldn't get them to germinate

I tried started them inside and outside and never got them to germinate. This was my first year trying to start flowers from seed so I am a novice. I have been told pansies can be difficult to germinate.
Owner Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. In the case of pansies, darkness does aid germination and the best temperature range for germination is 65-75 degrees F. Pre-chilling seeds in the fridge can be helpful in some cases also. A customer service agent will be with you shortly to follow up.
