Its a beauty Rob, thats why I want to get it right.

Even send seed out if anyone is great at germination...maybe Redsquirrel would.

Thanks!

No Idea Rob, never sown Passiflora before.

I just opened the envelope and I have bought from them before, same as last time I got a free seed Hollyhock mix.

Cover seeds of this Passiflora lightly in Spring, preferred month. Sow between 15 - 20 C degrees. Protect in winter from freezing.

Here is what I would probably do:
Wash them in H202, scarify, soak in water for 24 hours, sow shallowly in 50:50 perlite/vermiculite in a heated propagator in shade with vents slightly open, keep the medium moist, and pray they're fresh enough to germinate before they damp off.
