Since wintersowing does it for me, I don't nick or soak anything. I have germinated many large and/or hard seeds this way including sweet peas, moonvine, and nasturtiums with no problem. My only caution would be not to do them too early as they might rot in the moisture. Those large seeds have worked better for me when sown closer to spring.
