Germinating Shiso (Perilla Frutescens var. Nankinensis Lacinata)?

Germinating Shiso (Perilla Frutescens var. Nankinensis Lacinata)?

I'm trying to grow this herb... Its a beautiful red foliage plant, and also used in Japanese pickles. Has anyone grown this?? Does anyone have any germination tips? I have tried in a mixture of 90% compost / 10% vermiculite in a propogator at 20C, but no sign of anything after 2 weeks :(
