One or more of these factors are possible.
Temperature: The most important factor in seed germination is the soil temperature. If the soil temperature is too low a seed will not be able to grow.
Humidity: Making sure soil is kept moist after sowing is important. But not too much water, this may cause seeds to become water-logged and rot out.
Sunlight: Too much sunlight can cause young seedlings to burn and dry up.
Fertilizers: While fertilizers provide a good base for seeds to grow it is important to remember not to over fertilize. Always use a good quality organic fertilizer and be sure to follow the directions carefully.
Pests: Seeds are most birds staple. Insects and rodents may also feed on freshly sown seeds.
Soil conditions: Some plants prefer acidic conditions, others a more neutral soil. Knowing what conditions are appropriate is important. Soil Lymes or fungicides may be required early in the spring if your garden is particularly damp and temperatures are cool.
All seed packages have an expiry dates imprinted on the pack. Storage of seeds are very important! Cool dry temperature is the best and they will keep for years to come.
