Chive and Cone Flower trouble

Chive and Cone Flower trouble

Am I the only one that's had a hard time growing Chives and Purple Cone Flowers from seeds? I tried this last year and nothing ever came up. This year I started them in peat pots and pellets and so far nothing and it's been two weeks. It's frustrating and I'm thinking about just ordering or buying plants. Any suggestions?
